YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE WITH JUST ONE HOUR A WEEK
We ask that volunteers contribute at least one hour a week for a school year. You can choose between mentoring one student or being a learning support volunteer for a classroom. EdConnect will place you with a school or student near you. Upon signing up, you’ll receive training and support throughout your volunteering to ensure you are satisfied with your placement.
We look forward to working with you!
We connect volunteers who want to make a difference.
We’re harnessing the wisdom and skills of older generations to enrich the learning experience of young people who are disadvantaged or at risk of not reaching their full potential in the school setting.
Every community helping young people to succeed.
To prepare and connect intergenerational volunteers with disadvantaged or at-risk young people for education success and well-being.
