There are many opportunities available for individuals as well as groups, families, faith and civic groups.  We are always looking for tutors to help us teach English as a Second Language. Our adult students range from ages 18 to 80 and most come to Stamford with little to no English-speaking skills. We provide study materials necessary for you to use during the sessions and offer training if you need it. Please come in and tour our facility.  We will match your interests and schedule with opportunities at the center.  We value our volunteers.  Please consider joining us in providing these valuable services to our community.

Attached you will find a detailed list of volunteer opportunities with us that is regularly updated.

Please read carefully through our Volunteer Manual after you have registered with us.
