Become a Community Volunteer
We encourage all of our alumni to become engaged in their community. One way to do so is by volunteering with a nonprofit organization. Below are current volunteer opportunities in Hamilton County.
If you are a nonprofit organization and you would like to post an open board, committee or volunteer opportunity, please send an email to John and include the following information: organization name, volunteer position title, volunteer position description, contact name/phone/email and organization website address.
Spark!Fishers Volunteers Needed!
Friday & Saturday, June 28 & 29 | Shift: various
Hello, volunteers - Dustyn here. I wanted to type up a brief message to you all about volunteering at Spark!Fishers.
The deadline for volunteer registration is quickly approaching and we still need a lot of volunteers to ensure this event runs smoothly! Please, join me in serving the community in late June. One of the reasons I joined the City of Fishers team is because the Fishers community radiates a sense of community and commitment to service. Let's maintain that standard! Plus, all volunteers get a goody-bag of coupons and swag!
It is easy to sign up to volunteer at Spark!Fishers. Login to our volunteer portal and sign yourself up for as many shifts as you'd like! Or you can email me directly and I'd be more than happy to assist in scheduling you.
Please, let me know if you need anything - let's make this an unforgettable event!

Hoosier Academy at Indianapolis is a tuition-free public charter school authorized by Ball State University, Office of Charter Schools. As a public charter school, Hoosier Academies at Indianapolis provides the structure, administrative support, oversight, accountability, and state testing required of all Indiana public schools, in addition to providing individualized learning.
While there has been considerable negative press regarding virtual schools, the Hoosier Academy Board has been very proactive in resolving many of the problems related to Virtual schools. The Board proactively decided to close Hoosier Virtual academy at the end of the 2017-18 school year. The school had grown too large to effectively manage.
Hoosier Academy now offers two schools within the school system. Hoosier Insight, a virtual school that serves students in grades 7-12. Again, the Board has been very proactive with this school, limiting enrollment to 800 students and working hard to reduce the student/teacher ratio. The school had received failing grades on school report card last 2 years, but improved to a passing grade the most recent year. This school is currently in process of reauthorization from Ball State.
We also operate Hoosier Indy, which is a blended school serving grade K-12.
A blended learning school offers students both traditional, face-to-face instruction with a state-certified teacher for part of the school week, and off-site learning (including online) for the remainder of the week, facilitated by a Learning Coach. This unique blend of traditional brick-and-mortar schooling with a robust, online experience gives students a learning opportunity that exceeds the limitations of either model.
Board meetings are held monthly at 2855 N Franklin Rd in Indianapolis.

The International Talent Academy of Carmel is looking for enthusiastic Board members who believe in early brain development, have passion for education and performing arts, and willing to help promote higher level of learning, lifelong skills, and leadership development within children in our community.
