About the VIP
Volunteers In Partnership (otherwise known as “VIP”) exists to organize and enable productive ways for parents, relatives, and friends of the school to be directly involved in programs and projects that support the mission of the school.
The VIP Chairperson serves as the overall volunteer coordinator of the VIP program. This person offers direction and support to committee chairs and works closely with school administration and faculty liaisons to ensure that the volunteer projects are being carried out successfully and are in support of the school’s mission.
Faculty liaisons work closely with the VIP chairperson, committee chairpersons, and school administration to offer direction and support in carrying out the project of the committees while ensuring that the school’s mission and policies are maintained.
Committee chairpersons organize and coordinate volunteers in a specific committee or for a specific project. Each committee chairperson will work closely with the VIP chairperson and the faculty liaison to successfully carry out their programs or projects in support of the school’s mission.
