How will this opportunity benefit the volunteer?
This opportunity will benefit the volunteer by providing them with experience in the areas of education, social work, psychology, sociology, and most of all, community service.
How will the organization benefit?
Without the help of our talented, dedicated volunteer tutors/mentors, we could never deliver the gift of literacy—and hope—to these wonderful young people. As an added bonus, once trained, our volunteers become literacy advocates in their communities, workplaces and public institutions, reminding those around them that literacy should not be taken for granted, and that more work must be done!
Volunteer location:
This opportunity is virtual.
