Volunteer Opportunities (remote only):

  • Work with English Language Learners: As a volunteer with our English for Parents program, you will work with students to build their confidence in speaking English. Share in their personal triumphs and challenges as they learn to solve everyday problems and advocate for themselves and their families. All classes are currently online.
  • Teach a fellow New Yorker how to read: Literacy Partners has been teaching adults to read since 1974. You can become a reading tutor after completing our online training and coaching program. Once you’ve completed your training, you’ll provide one-on-one phonics-based reading instruction to an adult New Yorker. All classes are currently held on Zoom and require a computer for the tutor.
  • Volunteer in our Communications, Development, or Program Departments by assisting with a wide variety of day-to-day tasks and special projects.
