Volunteer Opportunities

There are many ways to get involved at Wooster. From helping out in classrooms and campus events to Chairing Galas and Golf Outings – there's something everyone can do!

New Parent Receptions

Volunteer Opportunities are available for returning families in all divisions. Help is needed to register and greet new families. There are also opportunities to serve as a new family “mentor." Want to help? Email Melissa Haas for more information.

Admission Open Houses and Events

Want to help spread the word about Wooster? Then, help us host an Open House! Contact Melissa Haas for dates and ways you can volunteer for one of Wooster's most important outreach events.

Grandparents and Special Friends Day

Perhaps Wooster's most anticipated day in the fall (Second only to the first day of school!) Grandparents and Special Friends Day is truly something special. Help is needed to set up breakfast, greet guests during registration, and guide students and guests around campus throughout the morning, especially when we bring the Lower School in to perform and take our students' grandparents and special friends around campus. Want to get involved? Email Cindy Drahzal or Anne Gilson to volunteer.

Art Shows and Concerts

If you've ever seen a Wooster musical performance or art display, you know how grand they can be! Help is needed the two days prior to each performance to display art. Want to help? Email Debbie Chodoff or Claire Simard for more information on how you can be involved in our next show!

Wooster School Parents' Association Gala

Each year, the Wooster School Parents' Association Gala brings together current and alumni families, faculty, and staff to support Wooster School. Planning begins in the fall and help is needed right away to solicit sponsors, secure auction items, and help spread the word! In the spring and up to the day after the event, help is needed to select decorations, set up the ballroom, check in and check out participants, and when it's all over, break it down and pack it away for next year!

Can't help out, but have something you think would be a great addition to the annual auction? The Parents' Association is always looking for vacation homes, unique experiences, and concert or event tickets – to name a few. Contact Jodi Felton to volunteer for or donate to this year's event!

Wooster School Golf Classic

The Wooster School Golf Classic supports teaching and learning at Wooster School. Each year, current and alumni families, faculty, and friends gather for a great day of golf. The Golf Classic Committee secures sponsorships, recruits participants, and helps organize and implement activities during the day. Want to help? Email the Wooster Golf Classic Host and Committee Chair, Chip Bevier, P '19 and '20. And, don't worry, you can help plan and still play in our golf outing!

Alumni Weekend

Don't let the name fool you. This event is open to everyone at Wooster. Help is needed to organize games, rides, and more. Want to help plan and implement an event? Contact Anne Gilson to learn more.

Host a reception of your own!

Don't see an event you like? Why not host one of your own? Each year, Wooster families offer to host receptions in their homes. Some host prospective parents; others bring together current families in their home towns. Want to host something this year? Contact Melissa Haas and she will connect you with the right liaison on campus.
