Athens Latino Center – Volunteer

Why volunteer?

People have a wide array of motivations for volunteering including serving a worthy cause, networking, gaining skills and experience, etc., and nonprofit organizations benefit greatly from the cost effective contributions of volunteers. In order to run all of its programs, Athens Latino Center for Education and Services (ALCES) utilizes approximately thirty-five volunteers on a weekly basis fulfilling various roles, such as aiding in ESOL instruction, Spanish instruction, GED instruction, citizenship instruction, CRCT instruction and administrative/office work. However, ALCES does not intend for its exchanges with volunteers to be one sided, but rather aims to nurture ongoing and mutually beneficial relationships.

      Hi Benita,
      I am sorry for the delayed response, but if you are still interested in volunteering please send an email to alcescenter@gmail.com about areas you would be interested in volunteering. They will set you up with an orientation time and get you started as soon as possible. Once again I am sorry for the delay but we would love to have you with us.

    Hello,

    I am interested in volunteering in order to practice my Spanish and serve my community. A friend of mine is also interested in joining me. We are both conversant in Spanish. Please let me know what times volunteers may come in and assist your organization. We are open to working with all ages, but if possible, we are most interested in volunteering with adults- tutoring for GED or citizenship

    Sincerely,

      Hi Pranay,
      I am very excited to hear of your and your friend’s interest in this area. We are always in great need of tutors for Spanish speakers. Please, get in contact with the volunteer coordinators at alcesvolunteer@gmail.com to set up a time to do orientation. I believe there will be orientation September 12th at 10:00AM and one in the evening. If you can make this you will be able to get started immediately. If you have any questions please let the volunteer coordinators know.
      Thanks,

      Hi Walter,

      I saw your post about volunteer opportunities at ALCES and how it would be possible for you since you are limited by transportation. The only thing I can suggest is taking the buses to our office. We are close to Athens transit routes 5 and 7 as well as the University Medical Sciences bus. Our address is 1692 Prince Ave, just after the GA Medical College and before the loop.

      If you think it would be possible to work something out with the public transportation I would love to hear about positions you are interested in volunteering for such as tutoring, web design, classroom assistance etc…
      Please, if you have any more questions feel free to email me back.

      Best,
