Volunteers are the heartbeat of AHC’s educational initiatives and the key to our students’ success.

School is starting soon and we still need volunteers! Please consider signing up to work with a teen or elementary student. One hour a week can make a huge difference to a student’s success.

Helping with homework is just part of why volunteers are so critical to our program. Volunteers also form valuable relationships with students and inspire and encourage them to succeed. Whatever your experience or your time frame, we welcome your support!



Our year-round program provides a comprehensive support system from elementary school through high school and during the summer when low-income children are particularly susceptible to learning loss. AHC’s educational programs encourage academic excellence and personal growth in a nurturing and stable environment. Because programs are located in the communities where families live, they are a stable and consistent part of the children’s and their families’ lives.

Our strategy is working. ALL of our high school seniors have graduated from high school since we began tracking our students in 2008. We are also very proud that all of our graduating seniors are going to college this year. Our elementary students’ reading and math skills are improving consistently, too.

Volunteers are a critical part of our success. Read about our students’ success, our wonderful volunteers and our many activities.

Here’s how you can help

After-School Volunteers

After-School volunteers help elementary students with homework and also build literacy and math skills. Volunteers also help with other activities ranging from art projects to math games. Volunteer opportunities available for an hour or two between 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm Monday through Thursday.

Teen Tutoring Volunteers

AHC’s comprehensive program for middle and high school students nurtures and encourages students to graduate from high school and maximize their own potential. Volunteers work one-on-one on homework and projects with teens one night a week for about an hour.

College and Career Readiness

Help our teens study for standardized tests, apply for financial aid and scholarships and write essays. Volunteers work one-on-one with a high school senior throughout the school year. Meeting times are flexible and arranged between volunteer and student.

Summer Camp Volunteers

Designed to prevent summer learning loss, this program provides both educational and fun activities for elementary children and teens. Volunteers help with outdoor and educational activities.
