Volunteers of Issaquah Changing Education (VOICE) is an in-school volunteer mentoring program that pairs caring community members with Issaquah School District students. VOICE volunteers work with students as one-to-one mentors one hour per week throughout the school year. Volunteers may choose to work as mentors supporting social skills and setting positive goals or as academic mentors with students on specific subject matter. All students benefit from your commitment.
During the 2017-18 school year, VOICE Mentors supported 400 students at all grade levels and at all schools in the District. There are currently more than 300 mentors who are trained and committed to volunteer one hour per week to make a difference in the life of a student.
For the 2018-19 school year, VOICE needs the community's help to support more students. There are 130 students on the wait list for a mentor. If you are interested in volunteering with children and youth, please consider being a VOICE Mentor.
One hour a week – we can do this.
Make a difference in the life of a child.
Mentors work with K-12 students that may need academic, emotional or social support; others may need a friend and role model.
