The AVPA Foundation depends on the work of many parent volunteers and committees to achieve our fundraising goals and support critical AVPA administrative functions!  Each department also depends on parents to support their productions, exhibitions, fundraisers, and events throughout the year!

Please consider donating your skills and experience to help the AVPA thrive. Contact the Parent Volunteer Coordinator for your child’s major department or one of the AVPA Foundation Committee Chairs to learn more.
