In the community. For the community. With the community.
 

Be A Community Builder

We are excited that you want to join our team at Bridging For Tomorrow! Volunteers are a vital part of our organization and integral to our mission in the community. We refer to all of our volunteers as “Community Builders” because they work alongside our neighbors to make the community stronger.

Literacy Squad

A child's ability to read proficiently by third grade is one of the most important predictors of high school graduation and career success. From third grade on, children shift from learning to read to reading to learn. If a child is behind grade level at the end of third grade, they will struggle to master the more complex subject matter they encounter in later grades.

You can make a difference in the life of a child by joining our Literacy Squad. Volunteers commit to spend 30 minutes a week during the school year in one of our partnering schools to read one-on-one with an elementary student.

School Mentor

Having a consistent, positive relationship with a compassionate role-model makes a huge difference in the lives of children. This program provides elementary and middle school students with a caring adult who listens to them and helps them discover their potential. Mentors spend 1 hour each week meeting with their mentee in the school.

We ask for a minimum commitment of 1 year and will provide all the necessary training and support. You can attend our Mentor Training for the 2018/2019 school year on Sunday, September 16 from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM OR on Monday, September 24 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM.
