• Families Forward Philadelphia's Department of Education needs volunteers to assist children in our Family Residence to achieve educational goals in our Reading Rescue Program.
  • Volunteers will be essential in aiding children with literacy enrichment. We welcome volunteers from local universities, organizations and churches. Volunteers assist students in grades k-8 at our literacy stations developed by the Education Department Staff. Volunteers will help enforce basic math, literacy, and writing skills, which are all subject areas our children tend to struggle with.
  • Volunteers should have a willingness to work with children in a busy environment, excellent people skills, and an enthusiasm for helping others! Kindergarten - Twelfth grades.
  • Come share your reading and math skills and help end the cycle of homelessness!
