Volunteer for The Miami Sudbury School
We believe you have valuable gifts to share with the Miami Sudbury School Community. We are a unique school model in which students have democratic say in all school decisions and also have full responsibility for their own learning. The Sudbury model believes that by treating students with the respect and responsibilities of adults, students grow in ability and responsibility. To this effect, students are free to pursue their own educational interests and are invited to personally coordinate resources to further the exploration of their interests. As a school, we want to provide our students with as many opportunities and resources to pursue those interests - that’s where YOU come in.
Some of our wonderful volunteers and "Subject Area Consultants" lending their time and talents to our school community.
