You can make a difference. Join us through one or more of these opportunities:
Reading Buddy Volunteers
The program is designed to help children improve their comprehension and reading fluency, while also developing a lifelong love of reading. Volunteers are partnered one-on-one or two-on-one with a WEH member and meet every week to read aloud for one hour. Be a “Buddy” Monday–Friday between 3:00–8:00pm during the school year, and Monday–Thursday between 12:30–5:00pm during the summer months. If you are interested, please apply here.
Tutoring/Homework Support Volunteers
Helps Club members ages 8-18 achieve academic success by providing homework help, tutoring and encouraging members to become self-directed learners. Volunteers are paired one-on-one or in small groups and support our Education Center and Success Lounge. Tutors are needed Monday-Friday between 3-8pm during the school year. If you are interested, please apply here.
