Reading Buddies Project
Do you want to be a positive influence on a child’s life ? As a reading tutor you will help children grades K-2 develop their reading skills. You will be paired with a child whom you will work exclusively with once a week for 8 weeks.
Senior Tech Support
Help seniors navigate technology and stay connected with their friends and family by increasing their knowledge about their personal electronic devices. From e-mail to iPads to smart phones, local seniors need your help!
Community Mural & Graffiti Paint Out
Help beautify our community with murals and graffiti removal. We remove graffiti from areas that are heavily tagged at the request of neighbors and Santa Cruz County Public Works. This is a group project that your family can join. Additionally, we paint one mural a year (usually in the spring).
Join a group of other teens in our 5 week leadership training and design a community project. Young people who want to learn how to make a difference in their community through volunteer service will gain skills through this 6-week program.
