Thank you for your interest in volunteering! There are several ways to get involved in the community.
Before you begin we suggest that you take a look at the "Volunteering Tips" section. When you are ready to start volunteering you can either participate in one of our volunteer programs or you can work with a local non-profit organization to fulfill a need.
YOU CAN HELP a student succeed at a local elementary school by volunteering one hour a week. Your time and compassion can make a difference in a child's education.
Read to Succeed is a community initiative lead by United Way of Greater Lafayette, Greater Lafayette Commerce and local community school corporations designed to motivate our community to engage in our students’ academic success. This program gives the opportunity for community members to become directly involved in student achievement. Read to Succeed will support our children and our future workforce in being prepared to succeed after high school by placing a priority on early grade reading.
