Earn to Learn's Volunteer Program

E2L is proud to announce the launch of our new Volunteer Program in Southern Az!

The Volunteer Program will connect you, our students, to volunteer opportunities in the Tucson community. This is one of many components Earn to Learn is implementing to engage our students beyond our scholarships. 
How will this impact you?
  • This is a chance to impact your community.
  • You can connect with local businesses and organizations.
  • Volunteering is a great addition to your resume.
  • You will have the possibility to develop new skills and knowledge.
  • You will meet and volunteer with E2L staff and other E2L students.
  • Volunteering is fun!
If you are interested in more information or have questions about this new program you can contact Taylor Whitehead at  taylor@earntolearn.org.

Be on the look out for emails regarding future volunteer opportunities!
