VOLUNTEER WITH WAW
WAW relies upon a diverse batallion of volunteer members whose time and wide variety of skills are crucial to the continuation of WAW's mission. Volunteers contribute in many ways both locally and from afar by helping with event planning/coordination, fundraising, writing and editing projects, PR and advocacy, administrative tasks, and teaching ESL classes in Queens.
See below for job descriptions of some of our current needs.

Due to the nature of this volunteer opportunity we are only able to accept female volunteers.
TUTORS- WAW NY:

You will be helping a child (K-8th) to complete and understand their homework as well as reinforcing skills from their grade level. The majority of our clients are preliterate and unable to help their children complete homework. Become a tutor and help empower a family through education!
TEACHERS- WAW NY:
4+ hours per week/flexible
Use your professional experience as an ESL Teacher or TESOL student to teach and develop lesson planning techniques and applications for pre-literate women.
