We Serve U

Volunteer Opportunities

Transforming the communities we serve is truly embraced by the entire Wright State campus. This is the first initiative that concentrates on the volunteering activities of Wright State University staff members and we thank you for helping to make it successful. There are many wonderful organizations that need help. Identify a volunteer opportunity today. You will be guided through the process by prompts.

We encourage you to check with your supervisor and co-workers to ask for their involvement with the project. Contact a We Serve U committee member if you have any questions.

El Puente

El Puente Educational Center is an after-school program that provides tutoring for K-6th grade Latino students who are learning English as their second language.  Our volunteers help students work on homework, read with them, and play games with them.  Knowledge of Spanish is not required, but it is a great way to practice learning another language if you happen to be studying Spanish.  We tutor Monday-Friday from 3:15 to 5:15 pm at the St. Mary's Center in East Dayton.  Feel free to visit our website at www.elpuentedayton.org.

If you're interested in volunteering, please contact Alyssa Torres, Program Director, at alyssa.m.wagner@gmail.com.
