Please follow this student-to-adult ratio when registering to volunteer:

  • For safety reasons, children under the age of 5 are not allowed in our packing area (sorry, no exceptions)
  • Grades K-2: 1 student to 1 adult*
  • Grades 3-6: 3 students to 1 adult
  • Grades 7-9: 4 students to 1 adult
  • Grades 10-12: 5 students to 1 adult

Please Note: Everyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult (an adult is someone 18 years of age or older).

HIGH SCHOOL GROUPS
At least half of the required chaperones must be non-student adults (teachers, advisors or parents). If needed, a few 18-year-olds will be allowed to fill in as chaperones.

*We recommend that groups of youth be third grade or older.

FMSC staff members reserve the right to amend volunteer scheduling.
