Volunteering with Living Classrooms Foundation

Living Classrooms Foundation could not do the work it does without thousands of committed individual volunteers and a range of student, corporate, and other groups who dedicate their time to supporting our programs. Living Classrooms accepts individual volunteers, interns (including for school credit), and volunteer groups of all ages and sizes – everything from high school student groups to corporate days of service. There are countless ways to engage with the mission of Living Classrooms Foundation.

Volunteer projects for large groups can be customized based on interest, group size, and availability. For information regarding scheduling a group project, setting up an internship, or volunteering/getting involved in any other way, please contact Erin Myers at emyers@livingclassrooms.org or (410) 685-0295 ext. 291

Instructions for Individual Volunteers:

Individual volunteers are required to complete a Volunteer Application and connect with our Volunteer Coordinator prior to service. Once you have completed the application, please contact Erin Myers at emyers@livingclassrooms.org to set up your first volunteer opportunity.

Inspired to Serve – Special Opportunities for Students!

We are proud to engage students in service projects and long-term volunteer efforts in many of our programs. Our “Inspired to Serve” volunteerism program has been established in honor of one of our very dedicated interns, Cara Becker. We hope that by engaging more students like Cara, we can inspire other young people to give back to their communities.

Summer Internship Opportunities

Our hallmark internship opportunity is our Inspired to Serve Summer Internship Program. As part of this program, each intern will have a specific and meaningful project to complete over the course of the summer as well as the opportunity to visit all Living Classrooms programs and shadow specific staff members. This program includes a stipend as well. View our current openings above to learn more about this opportunity.

School-Year Internship Opportunities

While we don’t have formal internship programs during the school year, we have a wide variety of needs and opportunities and are happy to customize an internship to meet your requirements.

Youth Microgrants!

In partnership with the Karma for Cara Foundation, Living Classrooms oversees a youth microgrant program. Microgrants are available to students age 18 and younger, who are looking to engage within their community. Students can apply for grants between $250-1,000.

Volunteer at one of our amazing sites!

We are always looking for student volunteers to assist with our programs, especially our after-school programming. After-school programming generally runs between the hours of 3:30-6:00pm. Opportunities include (but are not limited to): tutoring, enrichment activity assistance, sports coaching, and classroom assistance.

One-time events!

Living Classrooms runs over 30 programs throughout Baltimore and DC. This means we host a fair amount of one-time events throughout the year. If you are looking to volunteer, but aren’t able to make a large commitment, this is the opportunity for you! Email Erin, to learn more and join our volunteer mailing list.
