Help Kids in Northwest Austin Thrive - Be an Afterschool Volunteer
  • Do you want to make a difference in a child’s life?
  • Do you want to grow your skills working with youth in an educational and service-oriented environment?
  • Do you have experience and skills to share from a personal or professional background working with kids?
  • Do you like to have fun? Connect with kids? Learn about yourself?

If you said yes to any of the above, then we need you!

Foundation Communities is a local nonprofit dedicated to providing quality affordable housing and support services to families and individuals. We operate free after school programs at 11 Learning Centers all over Austin, including at our Cardinal Point (78726) and Lakeline Station (78717) Apartments in Northwest Austin.


We are seeking volunteers to provide general classroom support, as well as help our elementary-age students with homework, reading, fitness, enrichment activities and social/emotional skills to thrive this school year and beyond!

Programs run Monday through Friday between 3:30 - 6:00 pm. See specific volunteer shifts by site here. We can offer some flexibility for arrival and departure within these times. To start, volunteers commit to at least one regular shift per week for the semester.

Volunteers must complete an online application, pass a background check (no cost to the volunteer), and complete an online orientation course. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old.

Our next orientation opportunities will begin on August 15 for the next school year. Let us know you're interested and we'll send you updates when registration opens.
