One Learner. One Tutor. Changed Lives.
The work we do to build literacy skills within vulnerable communities is made possible with the help of caring volunteers. Our volunteers come from all walks of life and backgrounds. All you need to help is a belief in our mission. Previous teaching experience is not a requirement; a sincere willingness to help others is. You may not want to teach and may have other important skills to share like a love of community engagement, public speaking and/or organizational and administrative skills,
All volunteers go through an orientation that walks them though our programs, expectations and responsibilities.
See below for our opportunities to get involved. Volunteer your time to help others, but don’t be surprised when it’s your life that’s changed.
Volunteer Literacy Tutor

Time Commitment: Because the nature of our work centers around learners and tutors building a personalized approach to the subject matter, tutors are asked to commit to tutoring for 2 consecutive hours once a week for a minimum of 6 months.
