Working Together on Reading
Volunteers help our students with homework and reading after school -- even when they're in the mood to wear a silly hat!

If you want to make a difference in a child’s life, we need YOU! Our volunteers assist students in grades 1-6 with school assignments and other academics, including reading, writing, and math. Coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic and a year of mostly virtual school, there are unprecedented levels of demand for educational tutoring assistance. Most of our students do not speak English at home and are at heightened risk of falling below their grade level. We know from 20+ years that the power of our volunteer-driven program makes a real and lasting difference in our student’s lives by setting them up for success in high school and beyond. As a Vecinos Unidos Volunteer, you can be a part of that journey.


The program is located at the Herndon Neighborhood Resource Center (1086 Elden St., Herndon, VA 20170). We are seeking Volunteers to join us 4:30-6:00 pm once a week on a dedicated day Monday or Wednesday during the 2021-2022 academic year. We have a waiting list of students and need your help now.
