Volunteer Opportunity

The Center is run by volunteers. Although we “hire” some instructors, many of the instructors and coaches are volunteers. All of the Center managers are volunteers. The Center cannot function without volunteers. If you value the product the Center provides to the community, come join us. We all just enjoy the satisfaction of helping others learn new things and develop new skills.

If you do not believe you could stand in front of a class, or even work with students at their desks one on one, there are still many volunteer needs at the Center. As with any organization, we need volunteers who are willing to serve on committees to decide what we teach and how we teach it. The Center requires the full spectrum of skills that any organization needs: president, secretary, treasurer, classroom material writer, curriculum developer, publicity leader, and more. Here are examples of volunteer opportunities.
