In addition to our very dedicated staff Notre Dame Education Center, we are fortunate to have many wonderful volunteers. We appreciate their desire to partner with us in furthering our Mission. Through the generosity of our volunteers it is possible for an adult learner to achieve his/her educational goals because they are given the opportunity for tutoring and other assistance.
Offering their time and experience, volunteers tutor those learning English, preparing for citizenship and gaining skills to be able to work. Mike, one of our evening volunteers believes, "Gifts are special things there for the asking; other times they are just given to us. I have been gifted with an excellent education and can think of nothing better than to share this with NDEC students who can benefit from help through volunteering." A day volunteer, Jean expresses, "Volunteering to tutor adults learning is fun and rewarding. Working with students struggling in an English class, you realize how much they appreciate the individual help and attention. The same is true for those preparing for their citizenship interview and test."
We are very grateful for the many talents our loyal volunteers bring, as well as the stories they share about how much they enjoy their time with us and receive as much as they give. If you would like to explore ways you might volunteer your time, please contact Sr. Catherine O'Brien, SNDdeN, Coordinator of Volunteers at 978.682.6441 X 15 or Obrien@sndden.org.
