COVID-19 Update: We care deeply about your health and safety. Volunteer service is completed at the discretion of the agencies and the students who choose to participate.

Virtual Service

Be the one to make a difference: Volunteer weekly with an ESOL student and help them with schoolwork. Be the face that reminds them why learning is fun!

Details will be discussed via email after background checks have been cleared. In-person volunteers will arrive at their designated schools and virtual volunteers will have a secure Zoom or Google Meet link to have a virtual session monitored by an ESOL teacher.

Business casual attire in person, arrive early for parking if in-person.

Volunteers arrange times and dates on an individual basis. Will be coordinated between the ESOL teachers, volunteers, and myself. There are not shifts, as it is a 1:1 volunteer opportunity.
