Volunteering for Parents

Current specific needs:

Represent the Venice Magnets at a high school information fair in October. Positions are available for parents and students. Click here for more details.

A group of us will be volunteering at the LA Regional Food Bank on the morning of Saturday, December 1, 2018. Click here for more details.

Current general needs:

  • Magnet office volunteer – help staff the magnet office a few hours each week. No special skills needed (although a smile is always appreciated).
  • Magnet orientation volunteer – come help new students and their parents navigate the enrollment process, and share your knowledge of the “ins and outs” of Venice HS.
  • Magnet open house tour guide – help Venice put its best foot forward at recruiting events for new students. Tours will be held in the fall – check back in September for dates and times. If you’re passionate about Venice, prospective students (and their parents) need to hear from you!
  • Publicity committee – Talented volunteers are needed to produce promotional videos and multimedia presentations showcasing the Magnet schools.
  • Fundraising committee – help organize donation drives and fundraising events.
  • Hospitality committee – recruit and coordinate volunteers to host meetings and events for the Magnet (e.g. sign up table, refreshments, door prizes, etc.)
  • Translators – we regularly need Spanish speakers to provide spoken translation at meetings, as well as written translation for webpage and email notifications.
