Volunteer with Students
Sharing your professional expertise and personal experience with our students is one of the best ways to prepare them to contribute to our community in the future. As a volunteer with AchieveMpls, you will have the chance to make a direct impact on students while refreshing your own professional skills - and having a great time!
Here are some great opportunities for you or your organization to get involved. For more information, contact Jevita Baheriy at 612-455-1559 or email@example.com.
