Volunteer Opportunities

In Anchorage half of our students feel that no one would miss them if they weren't at school. You can change this. By volunteering in our PLUS schools you can help our students learn to love school. 

What you can do to help: 

-Helping students with their homework 

-Teaching students study skills 

-Playing with educational games with students 

-Reading books with students 

-Helping English Language Learner and Special Needs students with learning vocabulary, concepts, or customs 

Where: Airport Heights Elementary, College Gate Elementary, Lake Otis Elementary, Susitna Elementary 

Time: Generally 1-4 hours/month on weekdays during school hours (8:00am-4:00pm)
