Women's Club Volunteer Opportunities

You can choose from one of several easy ways to volunteer with the Saint Francis Women’s Club:

1.       During summer, you would have the opportunity to choose a job and sign up online.
2.       Meet your Committee Chairs and sign up in person in September at the first Women’s Club meeting of the year.
3.       Review the listings below to choose a committee job, then contact the chairs directly or sign up online – you may do this during the school year.
4.       For Christmas At Our House, sign up for a volunteer position at the Fall Women's Club meetings.

Volunteering at Saint Francis helps you become familiar with the school community and meet parents of your child's classmates.  Depending on your availability and interests, there are countless ways to share your talents.  Hundreds of parent volunteers help make Saint Francis the best school in the Bay Area.  Join us today!
