Volunteer with Us!

Volunteer to improve education in your community. Our dedicated volunteers support students by mentoring struggling readers, packing teacher orders, inventorying Shadow Store items, and more. Keep reading to learn more about the volunteer opportunities we offer!

Become a Warehouse Volunteer!

Our warehouse volunteers help us pack Shadow Store orders, inventory Shadow Store items, prep for fundraising campaigns and SensorySpace installs, and more!

Our warehouse volunteer events typically occur Monday-Friday during the work day and are about 2-3 hours long.

Become a Reading Mentor

You will meet one-on-one with K-8 students with learning challenges every week, motivating them to set and achieve their own reading goals. You will show them how to use Learning Ally, an assistive reading technology platform with thousands of audiobooks that make books come alive. Most of all, you will develop caring, authentic relationships with students in your community.

Become a Remote Volunteer or Translator!

Remote volunteers help us enter data or translate written documents for our families and students!
