Volunteers are the critical piece that allows our students to pursue their potential. Your unique experiences, talents + personality unlock our students in ways no one else can. It is only with the involvement of volunteers that our students receive the individual mentoring that changes their lives or the academic support that makes success in school a possibility. We are always looking for new volunteers to join our community and impact youth!
“I am only one, but I AM ONE. I cannot do everything, but I CAN DO SOMETHING. and I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I CAN DO.”
