Volunteers are the engine that powers NGF.

We are so grateful for the adult volunteers who return to help out year after year, and teen mentors who often volunteer throughout high school, and even come back after they are college students.

Volunteers have shared their experiences at NGF here.


Our volunteers provide homework assistance and tutoring for small groups of students in kindergarten through 12th grade in the core areas of reading, writing, and math. A certified teacher provides direction and support for each session. If you like to work with students and want to share your talents to help our community, or get community credit for college, NGF has opportunities for you!
