The Heart of Heaven dedicates as many resources as possible to vital program needs, and is extremely careful to minimize administrative costs. Therefore, we have developed a successful and extremely valuable volunteer program. Volunteers are most valuable while school is in session, however we can make arrangements outside the school session depending on the project/activity to you wish to accomplish.
General school calendar:
First term: February – April
Second term: May – August
Third term: September – December.
Please find a list of volunteer opportunities outlined below. Keep in mind that these are meant as guidelines. Please reach out if you have a particular skill or talent that does not fall within the parameters of the below opportunities.
