Volunteer Opportunities


Spring & Summer Volunteer Opportunities

We’re always looking for volunteers to join the team for our free writing programs. We work with students in groups and one-on-one to develop their creative and expository writing skills. Austin Bat Cave works with volunteers with a range of classroom experience. Our students benefit from our volunteers’ passionate mentorship and individual feedback. Take a look at our opportunities below and let us know if you have any questions. Stay tuned for more updates throughout January!

Sign up to volunteer for these workshops! Stay tuned for more!
