Volunteering in the C&CC

The College and Career Center is located on the 1st floor of the Tower Building and is staffed by more than 40 parent volunteers (parents of current 10-12th grade students, only); they serve students and support our college and career advisors by performing administrative tasks and acting as the C&CC receptionist during a weekly 2 hour shift.

Opportunities to work as a substitute or on special projects might also be available. Parents who sign up and work as substitutes and/or who work on special projects, will have priority for open "regular" shifts the following school year. To keep things running smoothly and seamlessly from year to year, we rely on returning volunteers for their experience in helping the CCC run efficiently; returning "regular shift" volunteers have priority over all others.

Registration & Training

  • All returning parent volunteers (and those who wish to remain on the substitute list) are required to come to the Returning Volunteer Meeting on Thursday, August 17, 2017, at 9 AM in room 33 of the Tower buidling.
  • Parents of 10th, 11th and 12th graders who would like to become new volunteers (if spaces are available), substitutes, or work on special projects must come to a New Volunteer Training Meeting on Friday, August 18, 2017, at 9 AM in room 33 of the Tower building.  We currently have several open shifts and the following open special project positions:
    • Scholarship Data Entry (2 positions): entering data about various scholarships into Naviance.
    • Hospitality: making treat boxes for college admission representatives during their visit to Paly.
    • Librarian: keeping the C&CC library inventory up-to-date.
    • College Interview Data Entry: entering information captured on the College Interview sheet during college visits into Naviance.
  • Attendance at the training is required in order to be eligible to volunteer in the C&CC. Available shifts will be assigned on a lottery basis with priority given to 12th grade, 11th grade, and 10th grade parents. New shifts begin the week of August 20th. For more information, contact C&CC Volunteer Coordinators Dara Knoblock or Parissa Mohamadi.

The C&CC holds an open house after each parent night in the Fall so there are other opportunities to get to know more about C&CC.
