Volunteer

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.

What Kind of Work Do Volunteers Do?

 

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 really do believe in what PowerMyLearning is doing: providing low-income communities with technology and powerful learning tools like PowerMyLearning Connect to spark the curiosity of the next generation. This is why I volunteer with this program; I personally understand how important it is to give youth the same opportunity I had growing up. After all, it led me to where I am today.
