Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer opportunities are announced via email and posted on this page.  The JHS Band uses SignUpGenius to sign up as a volunteer for band activities.  You are not required to have a SignUpGenius account to sign up or volunteer.

See the individual SignUpGenius pages for volunteer coordinators for these events if you have any questions.

ALL volunteers must be registered with Jupiter High School in VIPS.  Jump below for more information about

Register and Log Hours on VIPS

ALL volunteers must sign up as an approved volunteer at Jupiter High School in VIPS (Volunteers in Public Schools).  Everyone who volunteers at band events (or any school events) must be registered anew each year, and, of course, all of our band volunteer hours benefit the school as a whole.  You can register in the school’s front office and in the band room when we have computer access.

Parents who work at other public schools can register at that campus then log in at Jupiter High School to be added as a JHS volunteer.

Band parents are encouraged to register during the summer.  After school starts it can take the school district several weeks to process all registrations.  If you are not registered in VIPS you will not be permitted to travel with the band.

Please note that if you volunteer during school hours, you MUST check in with the front office upon arrival per state law.

If you have general questions about volunteering at Jupiter High School, please contact the JHS front office at 561-744-7900.

What Counts Toward VIPS Hours

The band program offers many opportunities to volunteer, and the program needs help in many areas all year long to keep things running smoothly!  Volunteer opportunities are announced via email and posted to this page, and they include, but are not limited to: chaperoning rehearsals, camps and competitions; coordinating trips, fundraisers and events; working at fundraisers to help with sales or distribution; selling tickets at the concerts; driving or moving band equipment for competitions or concerts; and attending Band Parent meetings!

Volunteering is a great way to meet the kids and other parents and to become familiar with band routines.  Your time as a volunteer is always very much appreciated.

You must track how many hours you volunteer for VIPS.  Please remember to add your hours into VIPS at the school periodically throughout the year.  It is most helpful to the school to have volunteer hours entered by mid-April when they need an accurate count to apply for school district recognition.

Earning a JHS Band Volunteer Credit

To encourage volunteering, parents/guardians can earn a $50 credit towards their student’s fundraising account with 30 hours of volunteering at JHS Band activities.  Credits will be issued to the student’s fundraising account upon completion of all 30 volunteer hours.  Partial credit is not available.

Some co-curricular activities, including as Spirit of Jupiter Marching Band, qualify for an additional $50 credit with an additional 30 hours of volunteering.

If a family has more than one student in band, then an additional 30 hours per student is necessary to earn the credits on the other student(s) account(s).  Multiple parents/guardians can volunteer for one student, thus pooling their hours towards the credit.

VIPS will NOT be used to track the volunteer hours to be used toward the Fair Share credit.  Activity coordinators will have sign in sheets, and it is the volunteer’s responsibility to sign in/out with the coordinator in order to be credited with the volunteer hours.  It is then the coordinator’s responsibility to give the Band Parent Board the total hours for their volunteers.

Questions?

If you have any questions about volunteering for JHS Band, please contact any of our Band Parent Organization Board members.  Contact information is located on the Boosters page.
