Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteering is a wonderful way to reconnect with your classmates and your school. If you are interested in any of the below volunteer opportunities or have any questions please call the Alumnae Office at 305-446-5673 ext: 1250 or e-mail us at mcgarcia@carrollton.org.

Class Representatives
The responsibility of Class Representatives is to act as a liaison between the Alumnae Office and their respective class. They are essential in the reunion planning process and in providing contact information for the alumnae database. There can be more than one Class Representative per class.
Alumnae Council Member 
As officers of the Alumnae Association, Council Members work to plan and coordinate alumnae events and activities throughout the year. It’s mission is intended to strengthen Carrollton and its Alumnae Association through financial contributions, promotion, meetings, reunions, newsletters, correspondence and activities.
Career Day Panelists
Alumnae representing various career fields talk to high school students and faculty about their educational and career paths and what has lead them to become the person they are today. The students visit two sessions of interest and enjoy hearing stories and experiences of the alumnae that once sat where they are seated today.
Annual Fund Volunteers
Contact with fellow alums is our vital link in the Annual Fund drive. The Annual Fund is essential to the life of the school. Alumnae are beneficiaries of earlier successful campaigns.
Mentoring
Mentoring is one of the most popular volunteer opportunities for alumnae. There are two mentoring breakfasts throughout the year: one for Sophomores and one for Seniors. The students are paired with an alumna who shares similar interests and serves as a role model for the student as well as a link to their Sacred Heart life after graduation. Alums benefit by sharing in the life of the school and by building a relationship with the student that is valuable and beneficial to both. 
Internship Opportunities
Please consider offering an internship opportunity to an Upper School student/s and/or young alumna. It's a wonderful way to expose the student and/or alumna to a career she hopes to one day work in.
Spirirt Store Volunteer
The Spirit Store is managed and maintained solely by alumnae. Alumnae volunteers are always welcome. If interested, please contact Pilar Cendoya Alvarez-Mena '77 at Carrolltonstore@icloud.com.

  • Spirit Store Donations to Financial Aid Program Reach $50,000

    Isabel Singletary
    The Carrollton Spirit Store is a true labor of love – for the school, for the students, and for merchandising. Started 3 years ago by Pilar Cendoya Alvarez-Mena ’77, the store is housed in the Fernandez and Argiz Families Wellness Center and staffed solely by alumnae volunteers, with the proceeds benefiting the school’s financial aid program.
    Pilar’s history with Carrollton is a long one. She has held many roles in trust; student, alumna, former High School Dean of Students, parent of three lifers, lifelong volunteer, and budding entrepreneur. In this latest role she has succeeded beyond all expectations, as evidenced by the latest contribution of the Spirit Store to the school. In October of this year Pilar presented a check for $10,000, for a total of $50,000 to the financial aid program in the short time since the store’s inception.
    A testament to her and her volunteers’ determination, the Spirit Store has become central to school life. New items, which she sources with great care, are eagerly awaited by parents, students and alumnae alike. An alumnae cocktail reception held in the store at the beginning of the school year has become a special gathering where old friendships are reconnected, and new merchandise is displayed.
    Carrollton is blessed to have Pilar and her team be such an integral part of our daily life. With perennial smiles and eagerness to serve their Alma Mater, these alumnae are examples of giving back to the community that played such a large role in their lives.
