Parent Volunteering

Our community depends on family participation, so every family is required to participate in a  job for each child enrolled in BJEP.  Jobs range in responsibility, expense and time commitment, but each one is important to the success of the program.

Below is a list of job descriptions so you can review responsibilities and timeframes. Please make sure to note the dates(s) you are needed to ensure you can fulfill your contribution to the BJEP community.

It is imperative that each parent fulfill his/her volunteer obligation or find a replacement. The parent must communicate any volunteer changes to his/her event coordinator one week prior to the scheduled event.

See the Volunteer Job Listings for descriptions of specific responsibilities.

If you have any questions, contact Wendy Scharr, volunteer coordinator.
