Volunteer Opportunities

Meaningful community solutions require more than money, programs, or policies. The kind of real and lasting change that benefits everyone is only possible when people from all walks of life are willing to roll up their sleeves and go where they are most needed. Treasure Valley volunteers, we need your help now. Please lean in with us to help grow and strengthen foundational literacy skills for our communities' littlest learners.
