Volunteer Opportunities

img_1455-web-copyThe Legacy Center is looking for extra-special people to support our organization through volunteering. We offer a variety of volunteer opportunities – from one-day projects that are perfect for high school students to longer-term efforts that change the lives of our local youth.

Volunteer Opportunity #1 – The Legacy Center oversees the efforts of the Community Alliance 4 Youth Success, the leading voice of prevention for Midland County youth. This group of 25 community volunteers meets every other month to discuss drug-use trends and activities that will advance our community prevention objectives. Contact Barb at bswierzbin@tlc4cs.org or call (989) 496-1425.

Volunteer Opportunity #2 – The Legacy Center also needs volunteer tutors to support our Adult Basic Education and English as a Second Language programs. Working one-on-one with adults, our tutors provide the opportunity for these individuals to improve their job skills, qualify for job training and obtain employment. Prospective volunteers should have a high school diploma or the equivalent and must complete our Tutor Training Workshop. Contact Lorna at lstrautman@tlc4cs.org or call (989) 496-1425.

Volunteer Opportunity #3 – This volunteer opportunity also supports the Barton Program. Through the Barton program, we offer one-on-one tutoring support to students. The time commitment is approximately two hours of tutoring and one hour of preparation per week. Prospective volunteers should have a high school diploma or the equivalent and must complete our Tutor Training Workshop. We request a one-year commitment from our volunteers. Contact Kristi at kkline@tlc4cs.org or call (989) 496-1425.

Volunteer Opportunity #4 – Today, we have more than 100 students enrolled in our Barton Reading & Spelling Program, which supports people with dyslexia. With a record-breaking number of students, our staff is finding it difficult to keep our shelves stocked with program materials. We need individuals who are interested in volunteering a few hours to make copies for our Barton books. Contact Kristi at kkline@tlc4cs.org or call (989) 496-1425.
