Volunteering at HIMS

Volunteers are the Heart of Hamilton

From baking brownies at home to working in the school library, volunteering opportunities at Hamilton are abundant and vary from one-time jobs, to on-going commitments. Volunteering is a GREAT way to support your student and connect with the Hamilton community.

If you plan to volunteer at Hamilton in a way that will have you working directly with students (not all jobs will), please complete the following Volunteer Requirements, and return all forms to Hamilton’s front office. If you have questions about this process, please call the main office at 206.252.5810 for information!

The sign-up includes a variety of ways to contribute, and feel free to use your favorite take-out spot if cooking isn’t possible.
