We are grateful for the gift of our volunteers.  Volunteers serve as a resource to accelerate academic achievement.  They work individually with students and act as extra support in monitoring our students with the daily routines of the school.

Your time in working at MZCA, whether it is assisting in the office, tutoring students, or sharing your talents, helps to accomplish our mission and educational goals. Our volunteers are valuable to us, and we appreciate your passion and commitment.  Thank you!
