Our Work is Volunteer Powered

Volunteers play a key role in our work. The success of our programs would not be possible without them. Tutor an adult preparing for a test. Build a lasting relationship as a mentor. Gain useful skills while providing meaningful service to your neighbors. Join us as a volunteer.

How You Can Volunteer:

Tutors: Work one-on-one with a student in our Career Education and Training Center. Tutors work directly with staff and student to set meeting schedule.

Mentors: Make a lasting impact with our EmpowerGirls. Mentors work directly with middle and high school girls. You can read more about becoming an EmpowerGirls mentor here.

Purple Purse Instructors: Teach a class on financial management. Sessions take place once a week for three weeks. To learn more about the Purple Purse Project click here.

Volunteer training:

Each volunteer opportunity includes training to prepare for success. Ongoing training and skill-building sessions provide experience to take beyond the volunteer setting.
