The engagement of parents in the operation of The Midtown Academy is critical to the existence of the school. Parents who take an active part in their children’s development also develop and strengthen their own skills. Teachers and other staff need help from volunteers. Staff and parents get better acquainted and learn from each other through volunteerism.
The purposes of the volunteer program are:
To make the school fiscally viable while providing an academically enriched program with limited funds
To empower parents by giving them a direct stake in the school’s success
To develop a strong working community that meshes both Reservoir Hill and Bolton Hill for the stability and renewal of both communities
To provide an example to the students that they can have a direct, positive effect on institutions that affect their lives.
