Thank you for your interest in volunteering with PowerMyLearning!
You can make a big difference in the lives of low-income students by volunteering with us. If you live near a PowerMyLearning regional office, you can volunteer to help at our Family Learning Workshops. These workshops, which are a critical component of our family engagement work, take place on Saturdays at local public schools.
Volunteers assist our Family Trainers as they deliver the Family Learning Workshops. Participating families receive their own Home Learning Center (a free computer loaded with educational software) to train on and then take home. Volunteers help families to set up their Home Learning Center at the beginning of the workshop; to learn basic software operations; and to get hands-on experience using their Home Learning Center to improve reading, writing, and mathematics. Sessions are three and a half hours long on Saturday mornings and afternoons.
In some regions, there are other volunteer opportunities available, including providing assistance in refurbishing computers at our warehouses and conducting outreach to families through call banks.
“I was really touched by the interest of the parents and students that on my drive home I was thinking how great it would be to work with kids.”
