Service Hours

We only have ~6 more weeks of school. The last day you can fulfill your service hours is Sun., May 26.

Unfulfilled hours will be invoiced at the end of the school year at the rate of $15/hour to recover in part the actual costs of a family’s lack of service hours. Report cards will not be released until that commitment is met.

Please click the links below to check all the opportunities we have for you to cover your family commitment.

School Day Opportunities

Non-School Day Opportunities

The fall diaper drive starts this week and goes until next Thu., Oct. 19. We will be collecting diapers to donate to Babies and Beyond. Diapers can be dropped off in the pack-and-play in the front entryway.

Make sure to write your house on the diapers so they can be credited to your house’s total! House points will be given based on diapers collected. The house that collects the most diapers will get desserts sponsored by Guardians for Life!

Sizes newborn, 1, 2, and 3, as well as pull ups, are needed the most, but all sizes are accepted. Open packages, baby wipes and formula are also accepted.

Badger Football Gameday Volunteers

 

StAmbrose Academy is again going to supply volunteers to be runners of food and beverages in the suites for UW Football games. We started this volunteer opportunity four years ago in which SAA benefited by over $12,000. Everyone that had a chance to volunteer since 2019 enjoyed the time they spent volunteering as they were able to meet other SAA families and serve the spectators in the air conditioned/heated suites. “Watching a few plays while serving and being part of the excitement as the fans cheered”, was a comment that the volunteers had after leaving Camp Randall. These volunteer hours will count towards the required volunteer hours required for SAA, and you can recruit your friends and neighbors to join the fun.

 

Details:

Take food and beverages to about 300 spectators (You are not taking orders or handling any transactions)

Arrive to Camp Randall 3 1/2 hours before game time

Depart shortly after the 4th quarter starts. (You can stay and watch the 4th quarter if you want)

Free meal from the concessions stand
