Horace Mann School’s success is largely due to the extraordinary alumni, parents, and friends who volunteer to support events and programs throughout the school. From coordinating a reunion to raising donations for Annual Fund, our volunteers are critical participants in the life of our school.
Available opportunities include:
Alumni Class Agent
Serve as a liaison between your classmates and the school. In this capacity, you act as both a "friendraiser" and fundraiser. As a friendraiser, you will encourage your classmates to stay involved with Horace Mann and help keep them informed of interesting news from campus. As a fundraiser, you will participate in annual phonathons and other fundraising events. Active Class Agents may become eligible for membership on the Alumni Council of the Horace Mann School Alumni Association.
Annual Fund Parent Grade Representative
As an Annual Fund Parent Grade Representative, you will be assigned to contact up to twenty parents from your child’s class to raise financial support for Annual Fund. During the remainder of the year, additional follow-up calls may be necessary. A member of the Development Committee of the Board of Trustees is assigned to the grade and serves as a resource to the class representatives, providing guidance as needed.
Guest Instructor/ Lecturer
Our alumni, parents and friends have so much experience and wisdom to share. If you are interested in speaking with a group of students or faculty, please let us know. We have opportunities in the classroom, during co-curricular activities and special evening presentations.
Homecoming/Spring Fling Summer Job/Internship Provider
Parents and students are needed to plan, set up, run and cleanup the Upper Division Homecoming and the Lower Division Spring Fling.
The Alumni Summer Job/Internship Program
depends on the interest and willingness of Horace Mann graduates and parents to offer our graduating seniors and college-age graduates opportunities for summer internship or work. Students are always interested in finding opportunities that will contribute to their education and further their understanding of possible careers or professions. In turn, you will benefit from the strengths of an energetic person, capable of making real contributions to your place of work.
