Volunteer with us!

We love volunteers!

Together with our staff, you as a volunteer bring a wide and varied range of life experiences to share with our students. Through you, our students are getting to make connections, build relationships, and learn more about their world and the opportunities around them.

If you are interested in general volunteer opportunities, please take a minute to read more about our programs and needs below, and then fill out our Volunteer Interest Form below. Our Volunteer Coordinator, Sarah Jane DeHart, will follow up with you shortly. We are so excited about your partnering with us in our mission!
