We have a variety of opportunities available and we would be happy to speak with you about your interests. Please email email@example.com if you're interested in taking on a board position next year. You can find descriptions of roles here. We also have program and event chair positions open if you'd like to take the lead on something smaller.
Open positions include, but are not limited to:
Volunteer Co-Director (we have one but need a second person for this)
Family & Community Engagement (FACE) Director
It's not too early to start working on your Reflections project for next school year.
The theme is "Show Your Voice."
Check out our Reflections page for more information on the categories.
Summer Lunch is our annual program to help fill the gap in the summer when kids aren't receiving lunch at school. School-age children (K-12) within the Issaquah School District will receive breakfast, lunch, and snack items. If you need grocery assistance this summer or would like to donate to this program, please visit https://www.issaquahfoodbank.org/summer-lunch-program
Would you like to volunteer in the 2022-23 school year?
You will need an approved ISD Volunteer Application for this school year, even if you were approved for previous years. Get a head start by submitting that information early in the year. If you were a volunteer previously, click on Update Application. If you are new, you'll want to register to volunteer.
