Volunteer as a Reading Tutor

Help us give every child the foundation for lifelong learning and achievement. We have volunteer opportunities to fit a variety of interests and schedules:

Board Committees: Use your existing professional skills or develop new ones by working alongside our Board of Directors and staff to lead and expand the SSL organization. Committees meet monthly and much of the work can be done according to your own schedule. Contact Daniel Lawlor, Development Manager.

Classroom Tutors: Help out once a week during the after-school portion of our program by working directly with our K-2nd grade students and providing them with one-on-one or small group assistance. Classroom volunteers are required to complete LiveScan and TB clearance, and participate in pre-assignment training and orientation. Get started by filling out the Super Stars Literacy Volunteer Questionnaire and emailing it to Maia Wachtel, Volunteer Coordinator.

Program Event Volunteers: Work with our students and families by preparing for or staffing one of our family activities. Sample duties include preparing lunches for field trips, chaperoning students and families at a museum or other field trip site, or running an activity station at a Family Reading Night. Get starting by filling out the Special Events Volunteer Questionnaire and emailing it to Maia Wachtel, Volunteer Coordinator.

Gala Committee: Put your party planning skills to work by helping us plan our annual gala and other fundraising, appreciation, or informational events throughout the year. Help with event operations, decorating, securing event sponsors, putting together exciting auction lots, designing invitations and print materials, and a variety of other tasks. Contact Daniel Lawlor, Development Manager.

Corporate employee/Service group teams: Let us plan a rewarding team volunteer experience for your group. We can have groups of employees read with students during the after school hours or help out at a Family Reading Night. For more information, please contact Jennifer Graves, Grants Manager.
