The Importance of Volunteers Like YOU!

This page contains many upcoming volunteer opportunities.  Some are one-time events, others may ask a longer commitment. We wouldn’t be able to implement or sustain events and programs we provide for the Keller community without volunteers. We’re lucky to have over 450 students and therefore such a large community of potential volunteers! If you haven’t volunteered this year yet, please consider giving your time to any of the events listed. Your kids will thank you for it!
