VOLUNTEER WITH US

Volunteers play an essential role at the Backside Learning Center. The programs we host at the BLC would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of our volunteer team.

Volunteering at the BLC is a great way to make a difference in the community, meet and learn about new people and help our students learn important skills and feel at home. Check out our seasonal volunteer opportunities!

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

TRANSPORTATION TEAM

Transportation can be hard, especially in a city without reliable forms of public transportation. Our team is a group of volunteers who provide our community members with a way to get to important appointments. The more volunteers we can have on this team the better, so our help would be greatly appreciated.

This is a flexible, “on call” volunteer opportunity.
