Comments: 
For Academy of Rock, best if students contact us early in the semester. It is best if volunteers don't try to complete all hours in the shortest amount of time possible. We want them to be connected to the students and be more of a regular attendee. However, we will work with schedules as needed. Classes run after school (4-5pm) and evenings (6-8pm) with weekend options. For office support, we would love to have more 10-hr/wk interns.
