Volunteer Opportunities

Fall 2019 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.

New to ABC and interested in learning more? Join us for our Volunteer Orientation on Saturday, September 14th from 11am–1pm. We’ll provide lunch and train you to get involved with our writing workshops. RSVP here to let us know you’ll be attending!
