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.

Academic Bridge Camp Volunteering
August 13th – 16th & August 20th – 23rd
Academic Camp is an academic refresher camp for students who are struggling with learning and maintaining the skills learned in school. Students work one-on-one with an academic tutor to refresh and build their skills for the upcoming school year. Academic camp provides practice in all skill areas with an emphasis on literacy.

Volunteer Opportunities in this Program:
Volunteers commit to the entire 2-week session.
We will consider volunteers who can commit to one of the two weeks.

Academic Camp Tutor Monday – Thursday (10:00 – 11:30 AM)
Work one-on-one with a child to maintain and increase academic skills. Assist children with workbook activities, academic games, reading practice, and literacy skill-building. Volunteers work with the same child over the course of the 2 weeks.

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.

For more information about these activities, please email MaryAnn Meyers at:

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.
