Volunteers/Champions

Mayor Turner believes that the City of Houston is not only a City of Hope, but it is also City of Champions. There is no better way to maintain a vibrant city than to enable those who can help find the champion in others. Our city's youth need caring adults and organizations. Those who are committed to being or providing mentors, advocates, or sponsors that will suppor an efficient cradle-to-career system. Houston will no longer be a city of "haves and haves not." Help us build a champion in every child, family, and community.

Read Houston Read

As a Read Houston Read volunteer, you can help a child develop a love for reading by sharing a book with them. Do it online or in person. It only takes an hour of your time each week during the school year to instill a lifelong love of reading in a student. Depending on which method you choose, you will be trained to:

  • Share an adventure by reading to a child
  • Participate in fun activities that directly relate to the reading material
  • Listen to a child read and encourage them

Collective Volunteer Houston

Youth Engagement

Volunteer Houston believes that the success of the nonprofit community is defined by its next generation. It is our responsibility to help build that generation by providing programs and service opportunities, in partnership with the nonprofit community, that engage and transform not only the student, but the nonprofit agency and the communities they serve.

Volunteers In Public Schools

Big Brother's Big Sisters

Help a child realize his or her full potential! Volunteer mentors, "Bigs" as we like to call them, are needed to meet once a week with a student, "Little", for one-to-one mentoring in the classroom, school library, school computer room, or school cafeteria. Although it takes place at schools, our School-Based Mentoring program isn't limited to the classroom. Of course, some Littles do talk with their Bigs about class, or do homework, or read together, but it's perfectly fine to shoot hops in the gym or play on the playground. At the end of the day, it's really all about starting a friendship. providing guidanmce and inspiring them to reach their potential.

100 Black Men of Houston

Our mentoring program is about real men giving real time to uplift youth in our community. We work with a talented group of young men with unlimited potential and it's our challenge to give them the tools to reach that potential and become assets to our society. We take this challenge very seriously. Come join us in our journey.
