Volunteering

Parent volunteers at the Denver Language School help make events happen, raise funds, build community, and support the teachers and students. This volunteering serves as one of the key drivers of the overall success of the school. Beyond helping all of the kids at DLS, volunteering is a fantastic way to get involved in the DLS community. Each family is strongly encouraged to volunteer their time and talents, either individually or as part of a committee. There are a variety of opportunities available to fit most schedules. All DLS families are asked to volunteer 15 hours each school year.

Joining the PTA counts as one hour - get started here!


Current Volunteer Needs


PTA Projects that currently need volunteers are:

  • Arrival & Dismissal Volunteers - One of the biggest volunteer needs at DLS is to assist at the start and end of the school day with the arrival and dismissal activities during the first two weeks of school.
Arrival and Dismissal Volunteers sign up for one of the following tasks: 1) set up and take down cones, 2) serve as Crossing Guards, and 3) assist in the Carpool line. We need up to 7 volunteers each morning at each location. Please help us make drop off and pick up as quick, smooth, and safe as possible!
