The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Would you like to read books to children enrolled in our Little Learning Warriors program or tutor/mentor Middle School Students?
We are currently welcoming volunteers to help with our after school programs starting in the Fall working with students from K-8. We will need volunteers to work with elementary school children on reading skills and STEM projects and we will need volunteers to provide homework help for our middle school students. Our after school programs typically run Monday-Friday from 3pm-6pm. We typically ask that our volunteers commit to 2-3 hours a week.
We have several sites across the city I'm sure we can find one located close to you!
