Making an Impact: Jane’s Story

Meet Jane, a retired teacher who wanted to give back to her community but didn’t know where to begin. Through VolunteerSpokane.org, she discovered a tutoring program at a local youth center. With her background in education, Jane found her perfect match and began volunteering weekly. Her efforts significantly improved the reading and math skills of several students, boosting their confidence and academic performance. Jane’s experience is just one example of how VolunteerSpokane.org can help you find your ideal volunteer role and make a real difference.
