We offer a variety of volunteer opportunities in the following areas:
Build valuable relationships through home visits in Mayfair neighborhoods to promote community unity and power, and to share routine reading tools with families.
Support teachers in preparing educational material for both school and after-school work. Volunteers will contribute to classroom projects such as setting up bulletin boards, setting up crafts, as well as in classroom support with students.
Read fun and exciting books to classrooms full of students eager to learn! A Guest Reader can be a parent, relative, close friend, community member, or teacher who wants to share a favorite children’s book with the class.
RAISING A READER
Help to organize and fill book bags for students while meeting new people and helping kids to engage in a literacy program.
Reading Partners connects trained volunteers with Cesar Chavez students to build strong reading skills to increase academic success in school. You can be a mentor, a leader, and a friend to a student.
Improve communication efforts by using your language skills to help translate at teacher/parent meetings, school conferences, meetings, documents, and more.
