Your children are supported by parent volunteers. Join us!

The HSK English team includes paid professional teachers supported by volunteer parents- members of the board and class volunteers. The board is composed of a President, Treasurer, Education Coordinator, Secretary, Marketing/Communications,  IT, and two teacher representatives.


We are looking for another parent to step up to be a Communications/Marketing volunteer so our current communications person can direct his attention to securing corporate sponsorship for this very worthwhile enterprise. 


We are also looking for one or two party organisers to plan the holiday party in December, and beyond if you should choose.


Volunteering with HSK has been fun and rewarding for all of us, and we welcome you to join us. If you have any questions about what would be required, please reach out to Matt Gilsenan at communications@hsk-english.ch
