With its origins as a parent cooperative, the Nantucket New School has a long history of using volunteers to facilitate its program. While we no longer depend on parents to support the day-to-day operation of the School, NNS has a number of interesting volunteer opportunities for parents and members of the community.

Parent volunteers are Room Parents, assist with driving for field trips, and help to plan special events and parent education programs. Members of the community are invited weekly to speak at Morning Meeting and lend their skills as Upper School Career Day advisors. Volunteers also occasionally help in the School’s adminstrative offices.
