Parent Volunteer Opportunities

The heart of a volunteer is not measured in size,

but by the depth of the commitment to make a

difference in the lives of others.....

Here at Southern Wake Academy, we value and truly appreciate ALL of our parent volunteers.  Each volunteer plays an intricate role in making our school the amazing place it is. We are all family here at SWA and our students have and will continue to benefit from the wonderful opportunities our volunteers have enabled us to offer our students.   


Parent Volunteer Opportunities:

Each SWA Family is asked to volunteer a total of 36 hours per household.

Career Day Committee

PRESENTERS WANTED: Career Day has become an annual tradition at SWA. This day provides students with a dynamic and tangible experience that facilitates a connection between their academic pursuits and professional endeavors in the future. Additionally, Career Day provides a platform to develop meaningful and personal connections between our students, alumni, parents and friends. Career Day is one way that SWA encourages students to explore their interests and passions as an extension of their academic program and in the process better understand themselves, their community, and the world. We are looking for professionals to come in and present to our Middle School students on April 3rd.  This day will also count towards your Parent Volunteer Hours!

GROW Committee

We are in need of a Landscaping Committee to help with the lawn and grounds maintenance at SWA.  This would entail mowing the property, trimming bushes and trees as needed, cleaning up the leaves in the fall and any other yard maintenance projects that the school may need.  We would like this committee to have both student/parent involvement and have enough members

MS Bulletin Board Help

We are in need of parent volunteers to help update our MS Bulletin boards located in Buildings 1,2, and 3.  We will be changing out some of the boards on a monthly basis to promote and showcase various themes and messages.  

At this time, we are looking for parents who have CRICUT machines to help us with lettering.  We will also need volunteers to help change out the boards once we have all the board decor ready.
