    What is Volunteers in Partnership (ViP)?

         The Uplift Peak ViP leads and supports school-wide events throughout the school year. Every Uplift Peak parent is a member of ViP! A vibrant ViP program depends on you in two ways: attending parent meetings and volunteering!

    Attending Parent Meetings

         Uplift Peak hosts a variety of parent meetings throughout the school year to ensure all parents stay informed with what happens at Uplift Peak and attendance will count toward your volunteer hours at uplift.voly.org.

         Grade level specific meetings, like Parent Conferences, are led by grade level teachers to ensure parents know how their scholars are progressing each Quarter/Semester. ViP Meetings are hosted by campus (Primary, Middle, and High School) and led by parents to coordinate campus events and volunteer opportunities. The Uplift Peak K-12 Leadership Team lead meetings like Coffee with Directors to present important information and resources for parents.

    Support through Volunteering

         Parents are encouraged to volunteer in a variety of activities throughout the school year. Parents must complete a background check every year before being able to volunteer on campus. Volunteer opportunities will be posted on a regular basis at uplift.voly.org, as well as listed on our campus and/or K-12 newsletters and sent via email or the Bloomz app. For our scholars safety, we require appointments for volunteer opportunities, that can be found at uplift.voly.org.

         We also understand that parents have a busy schedule! If volunteering during the school day or at after-school events isn't an option, consider donating food, drinks, or other items. There will be many events and opportunities throughout the school year where teachers and staff may ask for donations! Any donation will count towards your volunteer hours (# of hours will vary). These opportunities can also be found at uplift.voly.org.
