Current Volunteer Opportunities

Are you the one to guide eco-minded Gilkey students to follow their passions? An adult (staff or parent of any age level) is needed now to continue the mentorship of Gilkey’s Green Team. As a certified Eco School USA school, FAIS uses sustainability initiatives and material from the National Wildlife Federation and students’ passions to guide green actions and activities. By volunteering now, you will have the guidance of the current parent mentors as you transition into the role.  This group of middle school students meets weekly. We currently meet Wednesdays from 12:30-1. Time and day is negotiable for next school year. Contact Beth Clifton,, for more info.
