Volunteer Opportunities

Peace Neighborhood Center has an ongoing need for volunteers in many capacities. We would love to work with you to find a good fit within our existing programs.

School Year Tutoring
We are currently looking for volunteers to tutor with elementary and middle school students within our after school programs. Volunteers have the opportunity to work one-on-one and in small groups to assist children with homework AND build academic skills. This is a great opportunity to give back to your community and become active in academic tutoring for the youth of Ann Arbor. Our MINIMUM commitment for tutoring is one semester, one hour weekly, there is no maximum! It is very important to us, however, that you can commit without absence for the days/hours you indicate.

Opportunities for the 2016-2017 school year include:
Tutoring with elementary students (K-5): Tuesdays and Thursdays, 5:30-6:45pm
Tutoring with elementary students (K-5) at Satellite Center: Mondays and Wednesdays, 5:00-6:00pm
Tutoring with middle school students (6-8): Mondays and Wednesdays, 5:30-6:45pm

You must attend a Volunteer Orientation in order to serve as a tutor. Please bring your volunteer application & ID with you to orientation. We will complete a background check on volunteers 18 yrs & older.

The following dates and times for Volunteer Orientations are available:
Tuesday, January 10th at 5:30 PM
Wednesday, January 11th at 5:30 PM
Thursday, January 12th at 5:30 PM

Food Service
An integral part of these programs is the daily meal each child is served upon arriving at the center. For many children, the food served at Peace Neighborhood Center is their primary meal for the evening. Each year, Peace Neighborhood Center serves over 14,000 meals. Meal preparation is needed every afternoon Monday through Thursday during the school year.

In addition, if you are interested in larger, one-time projects such as landscaping and grounds maintenance, please call Bonnie Billups, Jr. at 734.662.3564.
