Volunteers play an essential role at the Backside Learning Center. Our programs are completely volunteer run; the work we do is possible because of the hard work and dedication of our volunteers. Volunteering at the BLC is a great way to make a difference in the community, meet and learn about new people, and help our students learn important skills and feel at home.


There are lots of opportunities to get involved and we need YOU (and your friends and family!) to volunteer this fall.
