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

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

  • Act as a “Good Will” ambassador to talk to local civic organizations, town boards, radio stations, newspapers etc. and anyone else about the mission of AFS and the unique experiences we provide.
  • Join a committee such as Program, Special Events, or Communications.
  • Distribute 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.
  • 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.
