Volunteer Opportunities

So much is said about giving to one’s school in the form of donations. While donations are necessary for endowment, the annual fund, and scholarships, volunteering your time is INVALUABLE. After all, when you give your time, you’re giving your most valuable asset… YOU! Please see the many areas in which you can get involved below and fill out the interest form. Feel free to call or email Jessica Wells with any questions at 239-481-4313 Ext. 230 or jwells@canterburyfortmyers.org.
