Student Support Volunteer Opportunities Include:

  • Lunch Buddy: Provide a mentoring friendship for a child. Each volunteer is assigned a student to be their “buddy.” The volunteer comes to school once a week to have lunch with their buddy, talk, play games or read.
  • Tutor: Assist students with homework, study for a test or develop their reading and/or math skills. Each tutor visits their assigned student weekly, witnessing the effect their participation has on the student’s educational progress.
  • Classroom Assistant: Come to an assigned class once a week for two hours (9:00 – 11:00 or 1:00 – 3:00) and assist the teacher in facilitating classroom activities. Responsibilities include individual tutoring, leading small group learning activities, art projects, checking papers and other helpful tasks.

Program Support Volunteer Opportunities Include:

Snack Deliverers: Deliver snacks to a designated school regularly (once/week, twice/month or once/month). Snack deliverers can pack snacks or pick up packed snacks from the office. THIS IS ONLY A NEED FOR THE SCHOOL YEAR.

Impact: Last year, ACP served 1,120 homeless students in 15 Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools. Of those that we served, only 147 had a lunch buddy or tutor and 57 had a classroom assistant.
