University Schools


Volunteering—It really does take a village! We need your help to accomplish our goal of providing a great education to our students. With so many ways to lend a hand, we’re sure you’ll find an area that you enjoy. Come on and jump right in—what are you waiting for?

Volunteer Requirements

For the safety of our students, we require all volunteers who will be working with students in any capacity, with or without other adults present, to complete a background check. Please pick up a volunteer packet in the main office, and allow adequate time for processing before you plan to volunteer.

Ways to Volunteer

There are so many ways for you to get involved. Remember, many hands make light work, so sign up for one, two, or for all! 

Booster Club provides support and funding for uniforms, scholastic, and athletic programs. 

Junior Bulldogs promotes community, team, and school spirit through sports for elementary and middle school students.

University Schools Parent-Teacher Organization (USPTO) is our parent-led organization. In addition to hosting events and supporting US staff, we have several fundraisers you can contribute to just by doing every day activities!

University Schools Libraries work with students in elementary, middle, and high school. Our busy libraries check out over 53,000 books each year! We need your help in our libraries as well as volunteers to assist us with set up, tear down, supervision, and cashier duties during our annual fall book fair. If you would like to help with shelving books and other projects one day a week in a US library, please email Mrs. Budzynski at or call 506-7022.

We have many more ways for you to get involved; here are just a few:

  • Driving for field trips
  • High school tutoring
  • K-12 reading buddies
  • Phone calls to help organize events
  • Involvement with the parent organizations
