Volunteer Opportunities

Getting involved with Urban Academy further connects you to daily life at the school and the learning experiences of your children. We encourage parents to get involved and explore their own passions within our school community. Parents are asked to volunteer 20 hours per year in areas of their choosing. Our Parent Volunteer Coordinator (volunteer@urbanacademy.ca) is the key point of contact for our families to help get parents connected to the appropriate committee or group given their own interests and passions.
