Volunteer Opportunities

Looking for a place to make a difference by giving your time? Do you have a team looking for a hands on, meaningful project? We would love to make your hours count at Lumin Education! We’ve got opportunities for those seeking one-day volunteer experiences, or those who are interested in ongoing volunteer work, through tutoring, campus improvement, and more!

Below is a list of current opportunities. All volunteers who work one-on-one with children must go through a background check. The Lumin Education volunteer packet is available for download HERE.

For more information, or to sign up to receive periodic volunteer opportunities, please contact Bri Ploude, Development Associate, gro.noitacudenimulnull@eduolp.irb, or 214.964.0500 Ext. 249.
