Whether you have 1 hour or 4 hours, we have one-time volunteer opportunities that can accommodate your schedule. 
Reading Day

Get students excited about reading by participating in a Reading Day. Reading days typically begin with “coffee talk” with campus administration and are followed by four 15 minute classroom rotations. Volunteers read a book and engage in conversations to ultimately inspire students to read and build their knowledge. This is typically a two hour event. Ideal for a group.

STEM Family Night Volunteer

Volunteer with our team during a STEM Family Night where students experience hands-on activities involving science, technology, engineering and math. This is typically a two hour event. Ideal for individuals or groups.

Organize A Drive

Fulfill our students’ basic needs throughout their school year by organizing a drive. Our kids need items such as: school uniforms, coats, shoes, hygiene products, blankets and other items to keep them focused in school. Ideal for a group. 

Holiday Giving

Provide gifts and meals to students who would otherwise go without during the holidays. Get involved by collecting coats, food baskets or presents. Ideal for a group. 

Guest Speakers

Share your career experience and knowledge with students through a guest speaker presentation. Presentations range from 30 minutes to 3 hours, depending on your schedule. Ideal for individuals.

Job Shadows

Invite students to your workplace to learn more about your profession. Job shadow events typically last 4 hours and consist of an overview of your company, a tour of the facilities, breakout sessions with your staff and lunch (provided by your company). Ideal for a group.
