How do you spell volunteer? A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.

September 10, 2014

volunteerOur volunteers are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. From working one-on-one and in small groups, to teaching the alphabet and algebraic equations, they put in hundreds of hours in our GED, ESL and adult literacy classes and students, which shows their dedication to lifelong learning and Project Learn.

Like many of our students, they are a diverse group of people of different ages, backgrounds and interests and who are working toward something they believe in. And sometimes, they too, are nervous to start classes, but are excited to make a difference in the lives of students they tutor. Once our volunteers are placed in a class, they find that the work they do enriches their lives inside and outside the classroom.

Do you want to make a positive impact in our students’ lives by helping them reach their academic or personal goals? Are you interested in becoming a literacy leader by empowering people and advancing your community? Our next volunteer orientation is Saturday, October 4 at the Main Library downtown Akron.
