Volunteer at NEO

Volunteering at NEO is a great way to make an impact in our community. Opportunities at NEO vary from working directly with students to helping with office work to hands-on labor.

Volunteers at NEO must be a high school or GED/HSE graduate and pass a criminal background check (provided at no cost to you).

Our #1 need right now is evening and daytime ESL tutors!  Volunteers are asked to contribute a minimum of one hour at a consistent time each week. ESL volunteers might do some of the following tasks:

  • Practicing conversation with English language learners

  • Leading activities that practice vocabulary

  • Coaching students in completing worksheets or other assignments given by the teacher

  • Reading with students to practice their pronunciation, fluency, and general comprehension


Some of our ongoing needs:

  • Tutor individual students in reading, math, and/or language at ALL levels (elementary through high school)

  • Work with beginning, intermediate, and advanced English language learners

  • Assist with general office work answering phones, photo copying, etc.

  • Work a 2-4 hour shift as an adult education teacher aide (data entry, follow-up phone calls, photo copying, grading, etc.)

  • Help organize or assist with a NEO events and projects such as a College and Career Fair, graduation ceremony, fundraising events, marketing, alumni group outreach, etc.

  • Begin to “blaze” a walking trail through NEO’s 20 acres of undeveloped land.
