Thank you for investing in our children!


Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us! It is because of our volunteers, folks just like you who donate their talents and time, that Helps Education Fund is able to achieve our mission of supporting educators and community organizations and improving learning outcomes for students.

We offer community service opportunities no matter where you live; there are many ways for you to support our organization and mission.


If you are in Charlotte-Mecklenburg, Chatham County, Durham, Greensboro, or Raleigh, NC, we are looking for committed volunteers to become tutors and support a child through our HELPS One-on-One program. Other volunteer opportunities (regardless of your location) include assistance with communication and outreach, video and material development, language translation, fundraising, serving on the governing board or a committee, and more. We welcome the opportunity to work with volunteers from across NC, the US, and the world!

To become a volunteer, please complete our volunteer registration form so we can learn more about your experience, interests and preferred volunteer activities. This information will help us to match you with the opportunity that you will find most fulfilling.

If you would like to find out about group volunteering opportunities, please contact Elizabeth Levene at

Partner with Us

It is impossible for us to do our work without the generous contributions and support of our corporate and community partners.

Corporate Partners

One of the goals of Helps Education Fund is to offer free and low cost programs and services to schools and community organizations serving students. We are able to do this because of the financial contributions of our incredible corporate partners.

We offer a variety of corporate partnership & sponsorship opportunities.

Community Partners

Helps Education Fund’s mission is to connect research with practice and engage teachers, parents, and volunteers to improve student learning. In order to achieve this mission, we seek to create authentic collaborations with community partners such as:

  • schools or after-school programs that provide the sites/locations where our programs or services can be delivered
  • colleges, businesses, faith based organizations, individuals, etc. to assist us with recruiting volunteers who could be trained to provide one of our programs (e.g., HELPS)
