The PCS volunteer program gives Portland Christian families an opportunity to be involved in the lives and education of their children through volunteering in programs and working on projects of their choice. There is a huge range of programs and projects from which to choose including chaperoning field trips, working in the offices, serving on committees, building, painting, landscaping—and many more!
Each PCS family is asked to fulfill a 30-hour volunteer requirement each year, apportioned into three 10-hour increments. Any family member, including grandparents, aunts, uncles, and even family friends, may fulfill the requirement for your family.
Some PCS families choose to participate in the program financially rather than through service. If this option works better for your family, the fee is $495 for the year, also apportioned into three equal installments, in lieu of the 30 service hours.
A new option (in lieu of the 30 service hours) is to donate goods from an approved list of items needed by PCS. This may be a less expensive financial option as the price, plus the time involved shopping for and delivering the goods, is calculated into Service Block hours. Please contact your campus office or the Business Office to inquire whether there are currently items needed.
It is only because so many of our families participate so enthusiastically in our Service Block program that we are able to maintain our quality programs and facilities. Portland Christian Schools absolutely could not function without the dedicated and wholehearted service of our students' families. Thank you for taking this opportunity to join in the PCS tradition of family involvement and support—a tradition that has sustained PCS for over 60 years.
