  • Volunteer to read to a child during the school year: Trained Read Indeed! volunteer reading tutors are matched with children in grades Pre-K through third grade who are identified by school literacy specialists as needing additional help with reading. These are the students who would otherwise fall through the cracks if they did not receive other intervention. Click here if you are interested in becoming a volunteer tutor.
  • Be a greeter at one of our VITA Sites: Dedicated volunteers are needed to help the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program provide free tax preparation services to people with limited incomes. VITA prepares taxes for working families helping them jumpstart their savings, reduce debt and invest in our community. Click here if you are interested in becoming a VITA volunteer greeter.
