KLS Internship Opportunities

We have a competitive internship program for motivated high school and college students interested in volunteering at KLS. We only accept a few applicants each year, and volunteers must undergo a rigorous interview process and background check. If you're a student or recent graduate who is passionate about our mission, lives near Mountain View, and would like to volunteer at our school, please look for internship postings – including STEM, marketing, and early childhood education – on our Careers page.

Volunteering as a KLS Parent

Khan Lab School has a Family Association (FA) whose purpose is to build and sustain a strong school community by providing communication and support for parents, students, team members, and alumni.

Each parent/guardian with a student at KLS is encouraged to be a member of the Family Association. Regular FA meetings are held to provide a forum for the discussion of matters relevant to the Family Association: parent volunteer activities, fundraising, and parent social events. In addition, the school provides regular Coffee Meetings in order to address academic updates and concerns specific to each Independence Level. The Family Association encourages all parents/guardians to attend these school-sponsored discussions.

In order to foster school participation and a sense of school spirit, we encourage KLS families to find volunteer opportunities that fit their schedule and interests. There are multiple ways for parents to contribute as members of the Khan Lab School community:

  • Become an Independence Level (IL) Representative. Each IL has one parent Representative. IL Reps attend regular meetings and help to facilitate a healthy flow of information. Please above for more information about this important role.
  • Join a volunteer committee. Committees will be formed and announced throughout the year, as needed, to lead and assist with a variety of events, including fundraising, graduation, and community celebrations. These opportunities may also be highlighted on our school's internal volunteer website.
  • Lead or crowdfund an Extended Day club or course. Learn more about the Extended Day program

Current families should contact their FA IL Representative and refer to the weekly KLS Insider for more information about volunteering.
