Volunteers

The La Salle Volunteer Program began in September of 1998 with two graduates from the class of 1994. Our volunteers join us for one year. Their work involves some classroom commitments, substituting for absent teachers, participating in the school's retreat program, moderating school activities, assisting in the school's community service program, assisting in development efforts, and devoting their time and effort in service to La Salle and its students. In addition, volunteers develop an extended academic, research or service project under the direction of a faculty or staff member. The project will be geared to the volunteer’s talents and interests. It’s a great experience—and great experience.

Letters will been mailed inviting the Class of 2016 to consider a similar volunteering of service for the 2020-2021 school year. If you will be graduating from college in May of 2020 and if the opportunity for a year of volunteer service at our alma mater interests you, we would like to hear from you.  

Everything you need to apply is here on this page. If you have any questions, please call 215-233-2911.
