Volunteer

Solidarity requires the work of many volunteers. Please reach out and we can talk about what’s needed now and how you want to help. 

 

Volunteer needs evolve. Some examples: make masks, deliver food and supplies, pack items, help with programs and working groups, monitor the phone line or email line. Got any special skills? Sewing, writing, logistics, finance? Let us know. 

We’re also looking for virtual tutors!

 

We’re especially looking for college students and recent graduates, but others may also volunteer. You’ll need to be able to commit to at least one tutoring session per week.

Financial Support
 

Donations—especially recurring gifts—form the foundation of our ability to support our neighbors. With every dollar, we can pay for more laptops and school items; enrichment programs for kids; masks and hand sanitizer; culturally responsive public health fliers; and sustaining our operations, which now span volunteer and tutoring programs that are serving more than 2,000 people every week.

 

Become a recurring donor or business donor or make a one-time donation to support our programming. This is one of the most impactful ways you can help ensure that this work continues now and into the future. We know that the end is not in sight for the impacts of structural racism and COVID-19. SYC/W6MA is committed to serving our city in whatever way we need to for the long haul. We can and will do this, and we need you in the fight.

Questions about where your donation will go? Interested in sponsoring or making a donation from a Donor Advised Fund or other alternative source? Get in touch with our Development team.​
