HSTA students rely heavily on adult volunteers. The volunteers are usually parents; mentors, such as physicians, pharmacists, dentists and nurses; and people from the community around them.

The volunteers help with community-based programs, which consist of academic enrichment projects that help further develop the skills, emphasize observation, hypothesis formation, experimentation, analysis and communication. 

All Local Governing Boards (LGB) and the Joint Governing Board (JGB) are made up of volunteers who live in the communities. The LGB and JGB play a big part in HSTA's policies and procedures.

This process of utilizing adult volunteer leaders to support youth learning and experiences has been extremely successful in HSTA. HSTA thanks all volunteers and appreciates all their help and feedback. 

If you want to volunteer and become part of the HSTA family, please contact your local Field Site Coordinator.
