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


Stuff the Bus School Supply Drive

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 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.
