Volunteering with AAMA is a hands-on and practical approach to empowering our clients and students and achieving our mission.
Whether you are a parent, an interested community supporter or a member of a corporate volunteer group, we have a place for you at AAMA! We need volunteers in all program areas – Sanchez Charter Schools, Adelante Adult Education, and Prevention and Counseling services. We have both ongoing and one-time opportunities to fit your interests and schedule.
All potential volunteers will need to contact the Development office at 713-929-2317. Staff can answer your questions, explore your interests and review current AAMA opportunities.
Most volunteers find that it helps to schedule a 30-45 minute tour/orientation. We can arrange a time that is convenient for you. All volunteers are required to attend volunteer orientation, submit an application, consent to a background check and complete all volunteer forms prior to initial start date.
Volunteers are now being recruited to work on the 2019 Illumine Gala Committees and AAMA’s Pinata Bash. If you are interested in joining a committee contact Debbie Ortiz at 713-929-2322.
