Volunteer

The Leaven volunteers go above and beyond, every day, to improve our programs and help our students excel in school. There are many opportunities for you or your organization to volunteer with The Leaven, and we’ll work with you to find the perfect “fit” based on your interests and schedule.


Volunteer at a Center

    • Engage regularly with students as a volunteer at one of our after-school centers
    • Provide an enrichment activity for students. Options include music, dance, art, health, or science
    • Be a guest speaker, share stories about your career, and expose our students to different options for their futures
    • Lend a hand as a laborer as we refurbish or open a new center

Sponsor a Child

$25 or more a month will provide a safe place for a child
to learn, play, and grow.

Our programs have proven that when children are successful in school, and have a positive adult influence in their lives, they are significantly less likely to drop out, commit a crime, or join a gang.

Your gift will provide a child with the essentials they need to thrive in school: a healthy snack, positive socialization, homework help, and enrichment activities. Your gift could also inspire a child to be the first in their family to graduate high school, go to college, enter the military, or serve their community as a doctor!

 

Corporate Giving

Because of our corporate partners, every day we are reminded that we are surrounded by heroes in our community. Our students shine when corporate partners (heroes) like you, invest their time or resources into helping our students excel.

Event Sponsorship

As a sponsor of our events, you and your company will receive outstanding promotion, seen by a loyal group of Leaven supporters and community leaders. What’s more, your sponsorship will help provide year-round tutoring and mentoring services to over 500 under-resourced children and youth each week. For more information on sponsoring an event, please contact Mark Hagan: markh@myleaven.com.
