Volunteering Basics:

Thank you to our volunteers at STEM School and Academy!  We wouldn't be here without everyone who contributes -- our successes are truly a group effort.  
Our charter requires a commitment of 30 volunteer hours per family (15 per single parent families).  
To help make volunteering seamless, we are using the software system, HelpCounter, to:
  • Set-up family accounts for volunteer requirements
  • Track and log volunteer hours completed
  • Select “interest” areas which will allow us to contact you with volunteer opportunities                                                                            

When volunteer opportunities become available within the area of interest that you have chosen, you will be emailed with a sign up link.

There are often donation opportunities available as well.  

Every $20 = 1 volunteer hour, and can be logged just like all other hours.  

Set up your account:
  • One benefit of our volunteer system is that when you sign in at the front desk, your volunteer hours will automatically be logged for you.  You will also have the capability to log hours from home.
  • To get your account startedrequest your password, or log your hours,       click here          
  • Please be sure to create your account as a family (ie: Jack & Jill Hill)
  • If you feel like you will both be here at the same time and want separate accounts, please let us know by clicking this link so that we can link your accounts and give full credit when adding up hours.  
  • Also, be sure to let us know by clicking this link if you are a single parent family.

Thank you, and please let me know if I can answer any questions for you,
