“No one is useless in this world who lightens the burden of it for someone else.”
– Benjamin Franklin
Giving your time to make a difference in a child’s life is one of the greatest gifts a person can give. Our children crave adults who take an interest in them. Nothing can be more precious and enduring than the happiness you can create in the world by being a part of a child’s growth. Won’t you please take the opportunity to visit with us and become involved in our mission?
A community organization can only thrive in its mission when the community is in support of us 100%. That’s why we need you.
All you need is a desire to make a difference. If you have a passion for making a difference, becoming involved in your community, and helping our inner-city youth then volunteering is a wonderful way to show your support.
For more information about volunteering, please contact our Development Coordinator at 210-223-3131 Ext: 204 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. All volunteer opportunities are contingent upon a background screening.
BECOME A READING SIDEKICK!
Reading Sidekicks will assist pairs of students as they read books appropriate to the students' reading level. Sidekicks will read with students: helping them figure out unknown words, asking questions to check the students' understanding of the book, and encouraging their efforts to read fluently.
At the end of the reading session, Sidekicks will be contacted by our Development Coordinator with steps for completing the background check application. Please make sure you complete your background application as soon as possible. Volunteers that have not cleared their background check, prior to their shift, will be unable to work with students.
