It takes more than talk to ensure that our community’s children, families and individuals have access to quality education, sustainable income, good health and stable housing. It takes people of action.
From helping a child learn to read in just 30 minutes, once a week, from your desk (TutorMate) to school beautification projects and corporate philanthropy, we have all kinds of gratifying volunteer opportunities.
No matter what experience or time you have to give, putting your skills to use will make a significant impact in your community. And you’ll feel great from the experience.

In our recent 2015 Day of Caring, more than 100 volunteers came together on a Saturday morning to connect with our work in the community. After only a few hours our volunteers made lasting differences in the lives they touched

“After just a month or two it was actually making a huge difference. Last year the girl I was reading to grew four reading levels throughout the year.” —Brian Kirchner, TutorMate online tutor volunteer
