Other Ways to Volunteer

We have many ongoing volunteer programs available to help support education.

Oasis Intergenerational Tutoring Program

Share your love of reading as you help a child develop a positive self image and a motivation to read and communicate. Our nonprofit organization recruits and trains adult volunteers to mentor K-3 students one-on-one, for one hour, one day a week. Reading mentors are currently volunteering in 47 APS schools. Join our team!

For more information or to schedule your training, please call (505)884-4529.

Albuquerque Reads

Some companies offer their employees a chance to volunteer in a limited number of elementary schools to support the development of reading in kindergartners. Since many employees are parents of school-age children, this offers an opportunity for parents to be involved in the academic development of children in their communities.

For more information, please call (505) 764-3730.

City of Albuquerque Foster Grandparent Program

This intergenerational program brings children and loving retired adults together resulting in deeply enriching relationships. We train and place senior volunteers in schools to help set children on the path to a successful future. This Federal program pays a tax-free stipend to income-eligible retirees, 55 and older, to offset the cost of volunteering and make ends meet. The program's flexibility creates an outstanding volunteer environment.

For more information, please call (505) 764-6412.

The Refugee Youth Mentoring Program

Created under a federal grant from the Office of Juvenile Justice, implemented by the Center for Refugee Settlement and Support with Catholic Charities, mentors in our program work with refugee youth ages 9-17 to learn English, integrate into their communities, achieve academic success, and have fun!

If you are interested in becoming a mentor, program sponsor, or community partner, please contact the program coordinator:
