Volunteers work one on one with 1st-3rd grade elementary school students, helping them become better readers and instilling in them the love of learning.

No experience is needed - just a desire to make a difference, and a love of children! We provide dynamic and interactive training, and full support. Small stipends are available.

We will adhere COVID-19 guidelines for in-person school tutoring and have virtual opportunities we developed over the past year in case in-person tutoring will not be possible.

Mission Statement

Metropolitan Family Service helps people move beyond the limitations of poverty, inequality and social isolation. We serve children, families and older adults in the tri-county area. MFS is dedicated to building stronger communities by providing services, connecting people with resources, and offering meaningful and rewarding volunteer opportunities.

Description

Metropolitan Family Service (MFS) volunteers serve in various capacities, depending on their areas of interest and abilities. Volunteers participate in on-going opportunities in one of three focus areas: helping children succeed, strengthening families and their connections to the community, and helping older adults and persons with disabilities live independently. We create opportunities that bridge generations and inspire everyone to live their best life. Additionally, MFS is the sponsor of RSVP in Multnomah County, providing meaningful volunteer opportunities for adults age 55+. With your support we are building a community that cares.
