Volunteer in the Classroom with YEC!

Your Experience Counts volunteers work alongside teachers to support the learning of K-8th grade students in under-resourced schools. These dedicated individuals serve in the same classroom for a full school year, encouraging both the academic success and social-emotional development of students. Volunteers assist students one-on-one or in small groups, providing support in literacy, math, and/or science.
