What kind of volunteering do you want to do?

Study Buddies

One-on-one tutoring is the best kind of educational support a student can get. Our Study Buddies program is designed to meet this need by providing a structured, academic-focused program in which each youth and tutor are carefully matched. Volunteers who can commit to this program get the satisfaction of knowing they are playing a meaningful role in supporting the success of a young person.

  • Volunteers are matched with a student (usually 1st – 6th grade) to strengthen their academic skills
  • Time commitment is 1.5 hours a week for at least the length of the school-year
  • Tailored curriculum is provided to structure sessions

Homework Center 

Are you enthusiastic about empowering young people through learning? Consider volunteering in the Homework Center to support youth who are looking to further succeed in their school work! This is a drop-in program, so volunteers get the chance to meet and help a variety of students each time.

  • Volunteers team up with staff to tutor individuals and small-groups of students on homework
  • Time commitment is 1 – 2 hours a week for at least a semester

Teen Programming

Teens have a lot on their plate, like taking on higher-level academics, figuring out post-high school plans, applying for college, looking for jobs, and more. Volunteers in the Teen Program have the awesome task of being there to help teens navigate these hurdles and grow their real-world skills! Volunteers spend time on a diverse range of potential activities. Sometimes it’s casual conversation and mentoring; sometimes it’s detailed and intensive school work; and sometimes it’s a sport or activity break. As a volunteer, you can count on each day being unique!

  • Volunteers work with individuals and small groups of middle and high school students on a variety of academic, enrichment, and mentoring activities
  • Time commitment is 1 – 2 hours a week for at least a semester

Community Advisory Boards

Everyone gains from stable housing – the individuals and families as well as the greater community. Serve on a Community Advisory Board to support affordable housing through financial oversight.

  • Volunteers review and approve financial statements for a CommonBond housing community
  • Time commitment is 1 – 2 hours annually for at least 2 years
