Volunteer

We love our volunteers! Interested in providing regular support for one of our programs? Please fill out the volunteer application or reach out to discuss. Our biggest volunteer need during the school year is for our Homework Help program but we welcome other ideas and skills to support our youth.

Volunteers must comply with our COVID-19 protocols, which currently include proof of full vaccination, face coverings regardless of vaccination status, and temperature checks upon arrival. 

How to Apply

Please fill out the application to complete a background check. Once the background check and COVID-19 compliance is complete, an orientation will be scheduled.
