Austin Voices has many ways for you or your group to volunteer!
AVEY sponsors community events like HopeFest and Harvest Fest that require hundreds of volunteers to be a success. We also work with local communities, schools and youth to create community dinners, health fairs, clean ups and community walks. Contact Janna Banks at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
Family Resource Centers
AVEY sponsors Family Resource Centers at five AISD schools (Burnet, Dobie and Webb Middle Schools; Reagan and LBJ High Schools) that have a number of volunteer and funding opportunities, including providing bus passes and emergency gift cards for families, family adoption during holidays and helping with adult education academies.

Stand Up After School Programs
AVEY has worked across Austin to develop a generation of youth leaders through innovative after school programs. Currently, we have arts-based programs (Arts Empowered) at Reagan and Travis High Schools and Fulmore and Pearce Middle Schools; Project AIM youth leadership programs at Burnet, Pearce and Webb Middle Schools and a Stand Up Club at Eastside Memorial High School. All of our programs include service learning opportunities that need volunteers. We are also looking for interns to work alongside our instructors.
