Volunteer Opportunities

Become a Tutor

Join a team of nearly 400 talented volunteer tutors who work one-on-one with students to provide more than 22,000 hours of instruction each year. Tutors are matched with students across all programs, and receive full orientation and training. We ask that our volunteer tutors commit to providing at least 90-minutes of instruction a week at our center in downtown Milwaukee. All volunteer tutors must be at least 18 years old and have a high school diploma.

Front Desk Support Volunteer

The Front Desk Support Volunteer will assist the organization and staff in communicating with incoming students, donors, and other guests and callers to fulfill their requests, as well as maintain respectful confidentiality of personal information. We are looking for someone to fill-in on the first Friday of the month from 8:30am-12:30pm and someone for evenings, Monday to Thursday, 4:00pm-7:00pm. The commitment can be short-term or ongoing. To apply contact Robin Brisco at 414-344-5878 or by email at
