As a non-profit organization Keystone Opportunity Center relies heavily upon volunteers. Following are some Volunteer opportunities offered at Keystone.
Assist Keystone in the summer months stocking shelves and putting away deliveries.
Food Drive Offsite
Assist Keystone at food drives in the community.
Assist students in reaching their educational goals. The sessions are 1.5 hours long, twice a week. The volunteer commitment is 3 hours per week. Volunteers interested in working one-on-one with students or working with a tutoring group must have a bachelor’s degree. Volunteers tutor students in English as a Second Language (ESL), EL/Civics, GED, Reading, and Math. Free tutor training is provided for eligible volunteers.
Assist our teachers in the classroom. Classes are 2.5 hours each, twice a week. The volunteer commitment is 5 hours per week. Volunteers must have a high school diploma.
Keystone’s office buildings and housing units need maintenance all year long. Jobs are as small as changing lightbulbs to as large as painting houses, and are both indoor and outdoor tasks.
Be the face of Keystone at community events.
Envelope stuffers, calligraphers and people who love to talk on the phone are all needed to send thank you notes and help our front desk throughout the year. Tasks are larger at certain times of the year.
Join our Spring Banquet and/or SleepOut committees and help plan our two biggest fundraisers of the year. Help us secure sponsors, auction items and raffle items.
Keystone often has needs for groups to accomplish a larger task – such as moving food from the food pantry storage into the pantry, or cleaning out an apartment between tenants. These tasks are great opportunities for youth groups, church groups, boy scout troops, or community clubs.
