Ways To Get Involved

Ways To Get Involved

We need you to be involved! Volunteering is a way for you to give back to the education you appreciate from Buffalo Trail! We know time is valuable and limited, but everyone has an hour or two during the year and if we all find a way to get involved then it does not fall to a few.

Places to get INVOLVED!

Please take a look at the opportunities that are available and let us know if you are interested in one or more areas.

  • Direct PTCO Service

Board/Chair Positions: This is the heart of our organization—recruiting, funneling, directing volunteers to events & programs, matching wants and needs with resources, always on the look-out for someone who might want to get involved, but who doesn't know how. You are a very public face to our PTCO! 

PTCO Audit

Review the PTCO financial and legal documents against a prepared checklist (provided by the State PTCO office) for compliance with regulations, policies and best practices. Identify any required amendments and recommend improvements. A working knowledge of finances and PTCO practices is useful, but not required.
