Volunteerism has always been a core component of the folk school tradition, and everyone at the AFS is grateful to the many who have contributed their dedication, skills and hard word toward advancing the cause.

Occasionally, the AFS needs volunteers for specific projects. At such times, we promote the volunteer opportunity on our website, in newsletters and catalogs, and through social media.

Here are some of the ways you can participate at the AFS:

  • Act as a “Good Will” ambassadors to talk to local civic organizations, town boards, radio stations, newspapers etc. and anyone else about the mission of the AFS and the unique experiences we provide.
  • Join a committee such as Program, Special Events, Communications or Finance.
  • Serve as a Tour Guides at the school.
  • Distribute the AFS Catalogs in your neighborhood or throughout the Region.
  • Help with investigating new alliances for AFS such as veterans organizations, colleges and universities, local schools, camps, senior citizens groups, and Adirondack resorts.
  • Act as a talent scout for new instructors and class ideas.
  • Assist in the office, gift shop, or volunteer weekends at the front desk.
  • Help ready our facilities for classes and spring clean up
  • Engage in public relations and other forms of promotion and outreach such as working a booth at a trade/craft show, chamber of commerce meeting, or similar gathering.
  • Beautify the school grounds through gardening and landscaping.
