Volunteer at Ashbury

Every year, we rely on hundreds of Ashbury moms, dads, alumni and friends to volunteer countless hours to ensure that our school thrives. There are many ways to get involved at Ashbury that match your interests, expertise and time availability.

Below are a few examples of ways you can volunteer:

The Ashbury College Guild

The Guild is a parent volunteer group that organizes a number of community building and fundraising events on behalf of the school, including the popular Welcome BBQ, the Used Uniform Sale and most notably, The Ashbury Ball. The volunteer opportunities available with the Guild are numerous and require only as much time as you are able to give.

The Ashbury Parents' Committee

The Ashbury Parents' Committee (PC) acts as an advisory group and sounding board for the Head of School, Deputy Head Teaching and Learning, Head of Senior School and the Head of Junior School.Their main objectives are welcoming new parents, liaising with the boarding community and organizing Parentscope twice annually. There are 10 meetings a year including open Town Hall meetings.

School and Student Activities

Ashbury depends on volunteers to help create an exceptional student experience, by volunteering at career day, helping in the library and the archives, lending a hand on school photo day and International day, coaching teams and providing assistance at sporting events, and more. These volunteers directly impact student life and provide a valuable service to our community.

Committees and Other

Whatever your interest and time availability, there are opportunities to contribute to the Ashbury Community. In addition to those options listed above, there are several parent and alumni volunteer committees, working groups and boards that may need your help. Alternatively, tell us how you would like to be involved by contacting the Volunteer Coordinator.
