Short-Term Volunteer Opportunities
Oakland International High School
We occasionally have short-term or one-off needs with which volunteers can be of help (work days, garden support, testing help, registration volunteers, etc). To get involved, OIHS asks prospective volunteers to complete this short volunteer interest form. A team member will follow up after!
