Volunteer Opportunities


Spring 2020 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. Then, sign up to volunteer!

New to ABC? Please join us for our spring Volunteer Orientation on Saturday, January 11th from 11:30am–1:30pm at the ABC office on 1210 Rosewood Ave. We’ll discuss the basics of volunteering with ABC while enjoying some tacos! Click here to RSVP.
