'Hoos, are you looking for a weekly volunteer opportunity for this semester? It's not too late! Madison House is still recruiting volunteers to serve with Action in Reading and ACES through our Youth Mentoring program.
Action in Reading is like a book club for local elementary school students led by volunteers. It's a lot of fun and really rewarding! Students come to ‘book club’ every week to read, play games, and solve puzzles with student and adult volunteers. The volunteers will get to know the students and help them develop personally and academically throughout the semester. Shifts take place every Thursday from 2:00pm to 4:00pm. Click HERE for more details and to register.
ACES volunteers play chess with children and teens at local schools as well as Boys and Girls Club sites. It's an exceptionally rewarding experience. Playing ACES Chess is a nonprofit program that brings chess to the Charlottesville youth. Chess club participants range in ability from true beginners to truly exceptional students waiting for a true challenge in their academic lives.
Volunteer shifts with ACES are available throughout the week. Click HERE for more details and to register.
