Many of our programs offer special volunteer opportunities to connect with our community’s newcomers. Volunteers serve once a week in English classes or in after-school programs. If you’re interested in joining our team of incredible volunteers, please contact us at volunteer@rdclansing.org. We’d love for you to join us! Additionally, you can fill out this interest form, and our Volunteer Coordinator will get back to you soon.

Volunteers commit to serving in a weekly program for one semester (about 8 weeks). Volunteers must be 18 years old and must have completed high school. The RDC requires that all new volunteers attend a mandatory training and submit paperwork to process background checks before they begin their service. Our Summer semester runs June 10th to August 8th, 2024.
