Lend a helping hand as a virtual volunteer!
WINGS is happy and honored to welcome a variety of individual volunteers to support our programs: high school students, retirees, local business people, and all other members of the community looking to get involved with a local organization.
In order to meet the safety needs of our students & staff as well as satisfy school requirements during COVID-19 ALL volunteers will be one-on-one virtual tutors and literacy supporters of Atlanta Wings kids. Please Note: Volunteers are NOT required to be in the Atlanta area to be a virtual tutor.
If you would prefer to wait and volunteer in-person, please reach out again in September 2021.
We hope to start having volunteers on-site in early October 2021.
Volunteering at WINGS
We welcome program volunteers to help in the following areas:
- Virtually assist with Academic Center | Provide homework help, play STEM-related games, or support kids that need more individualized attention
- Become a virtual WINGS Companion | Mentor a child on a consistent basis by helping to reinforce social emotional lessons and act as a positive role model
- Provide Spanish translation
Volunteers support our program Monday through Friday between 3:00-6:00 PM. You can sign-up to volunteer at a frequency that works for you – one time, once a week, or once a month. No experience or special skills required beyond a big, open heart to share with our amazing kids!
We want you! But first…
- Volunteer applications are accepted October 1 – April 1 and the last day to volunteer is April 30th
