Volunteers in Charlotte

Volunteer Opportunities

Classroom Central would not be able to fulfill its mission without the awesome community members who donate their time and talents each year as volunteers. In 2018-2019, more than 2,450 individuals contributed nearly 16,000 hours of their time!

Volunteering at Classroom Central is a fun way to support students and teachers in our region. We can accommodate large corporate groups, families with children as young as six and adults of all ages and abilities. We even have opportunities that don’t require you to leave your house or place of business.  Because we have such a wide variety of opportunities, we’re certain you will find the perfect one for you!

To get started and to see a list of specific volunteer opportunities by date, please visit our VOLUNTEER HUB.

Any questions about volunteer opportunities should be directed to our Volunteer Coordinator, Risa Brandon, (704) 377-1740 ext. 421
