NextGen Dublin Volunteer Opportunities
Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities
The NextGen Dublin Literacy Program
By volunteering just one lunch hour per week for eight weeks in the NextGen Dublin Literacy Program, you can help a first-grade Riverside Elementary student with reading and comprehension skills. Now in its fifth year, the Dublin Chamber Literacy Program is rewarding for both the children and volunteers.
“Words cannot describe the feeling you get when a child tells you that you are the best part of his or her week. I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience in the Literacy Program. The commitment is only one lunch hour a week, and the impact you make on a child’s life cannot be measured.”
Megan K. Heinzen, senior account executive at Parallel Technologies, Inc. and Literacy Program volunteer
Call the Chamber at 614-889-2001 for details about the next literacy program volunteer opportunity.
