Get Involved

Volunteer

Our students need people like you. You don’t need to be a bookworm or the scholarly type. You just need to be passionate about helping others fulfill their literacy goals. We are currently looking for volunteers to help with:

  • One-to-one mentoring
  • Small group facilitator
  • Basic computer class facilitator
  • Data entry (approximately 2 hours per week)
  • Front desk reception from 3:30pm – 7:00pm
  • Student registration and student ombudsman
  • Special projects, events, and committees

Please contact us for more details about the above volunteer opportunities. All volunteers are required to attend a one hour orientation. If you choose to work directly with students, you must attend a five hour training that is held on a Friday.

  • WaveMakers support our social media fund drives.
  • Supporters encourage adults with low reading skills to visit and find out what it means to be a student here.
