Parent/Family Volunteers

The gift of time and talent is an essential resource for Marin Catholic and makes the school community vibrant. There are many opportunities to lend energy and expertise and there is an expectation that all parents volunteer in some capacity each year. Whether helping with community events and fundraisers, supporting drama or music productions, acting as a team parent, or assisting with Campus Ministry - there is something special for everyone.

Parent/Family Volunteer Commitment

As a community, families support Marin Catholic by participating in the life of the community. Every family is expected to donate a minimum of 10 hours of service in an area of interest each school year. The following are areas where volunteers can share their time and talent to benefit the MC community:
  • Serving as a member of a board, such as the Parent Advisory Board
  • Volunteering for a community event such as Mother Son Dance, Father-Daughter Dance, Christmas Faculty Lunch, Booster’s Crab Feed, Spring Auction and Student Showcase, Senior Dinner, or Mom's Night out Shopping Boutique
  • Acting as an athletic team parent
  • Serving as a snack shack volunteer
  • Assisting in transportation to games
  • Hosting team dinners
  • Serving as a drama and music performance volunteer
  • Assisting with graphic arts design
  • Acting as at-large community volunteers in Admissions, Campus Ministry, Advancement, or other offices
  • Donating refreshments for school events ($25 value = 1 service hour), two dozen homemade refreshments or meals = 1 service hour  
Marin Catholic hopes that parents, extended family, and friends will see the benefit of partnering in their child’s education, and support one or many of the initiatives listed above. As a school built on integrity and honor, parents are expected to keep track of their own volunteer hours.


Special events throughout the year raise funds for programs benefiting students and provide opportunities for the community to celebrate together. There are many ways to participate – sponsorships, item donations, and of course, through attendance at the events organized by the school.
