Volunteer

PFA Volunteers make things happen at Punahou! They support student activities including social functions, registration days, Chapel recognition programs, Flaming “P” and graduation activities, and, of course, Carnival! 

Volunteers also support teachers through the active room/team parent program and host the Kirsch Gallery. PFA volunteers assist with the admission process, offering campus tours and welcoming new parents to Punahou through the New Families Program. Through the education and communication committees, these volunteers assist other parents during parent nights, Teacher Talks at the monthly meetings, Brown Bag lunches, Parent Education speakers and a Parent Education Fair. All parents are invited and encouraged to participate in these fun and rewarding activities. 

Opportunities are available for short, one-time projects or varying levels of commitment. Experienced volunteers regularly step up to take on more responsibility through leadership roles.
