    Fall Social co-chair and other talent wanted! Step up to be a PTA co-chair, and help keep Burbank's many traditions alive.

    All committees are open to additional volunteers, fresh perspectives, and new energy. Please see the online VOLUNTEER INTEREST FORM for information about all the committees and to indicate your interest. Please note, certain committees – the Directory, Fall Social, Burbank Walks, and Garden Committees – are most in need of volunteers.

    Do you have questions about the time commitment involved? We have answers.

    The number of hours involved, as well as the timing (day, evening or weekend; year-round or seasonal) varies from committee to committee, and volunteers find the sweet spot that works for them. Time estimates and a short description for all the committees are provided on the VOLUNTEER INTEREST FORM. Use the form to let you know what sounds interesting, and we will contact you to provide more information and see if you want to opt in.

    Thank you for giving your time and talents!
