To foster a spirit of community as well as keep the tuition low, the German School of the East Bay asks that each family or adult student volunteer at least 3 hours per semester.  At the beginning of the semester, a $100 volunteer/library book deposit is required (payment can be made via PayPal), and once the volunteer commitment has been met, and no library books are outstanding, the deposit is returned at the end of the semester. Deposits are not carried over from one semester to the next.

In addition to the volunteer hours, each family/student is asked to bring a healthy snack at least once during the semester.

Volunteer hours and snack commitments–both of which are to be fulfilled– are managed via SignUpGenius.

Volunteer opportunities for fall will be posted soon.
