Mountain Pathways parents agree to provide 30 hours of volunteer service to the community as part of their yearly contract.

These hours can be contributed on community workdays (held twice yearly, the Saturday before school starts in August and another Saturday in April after the winter is finished with us), by planning, organizing, and working at our annual festivals, or by providing assistance as needed with building and grounds or in the classrooms.

We also offer volunteer opportunities to individuals in the area who do not have children at the school. Many Appalachian State students complete internships at our facility in the classrooms, the afterschool program, through counseling, tutoring or other educational areas. All volunteers must submit to a criminal history check, and will be supervised by a member of the staff throughout their tenure with the school.

Current Volunteer Needs

Substitute Teachers: If you think you could help out on occasion as a sub in one of our classrooms, let us know your availability and we will add you to our list. We do try to avoid a situation where you would be subbing in your child’s class.

Buildings and Grounds Needs: Email mpathways@gmail.com to inquire about specific volunteer opportunities.

Board of Trustees: Our dedicated parent board of trustees takes the lead in our fundraising efforts, while MPS families assist in organizing and implementing various projects. We are looking ahead to several exciting fundraising projects this year including our annual festival, Mountain Valleyfest.
