Here you'll find our application for volunteering in the Summer or Fall of 2013.
For students hoping to teach in the Spring semester: the online application and appropriate background check forms should be completed by noon on Monday, April 22nd. (Please fill out an application for each institution at which you have applied to volunteer).
For students applying to volunteer in a non-teaching (tutoring) capacity: We are not yet accepting general (tutoring) applications for Fall 2013. Opportunities to volunteer in the summer are usually available but limited. If you will be in Grinnell for the summer, and you wish to volunteer as a tutor, contact [grinnellinprison].
Note: Because of Department of Corrections/Iowa Juvenile Home regulations, students under the age of 18 are not eligible to volunteer. If you are interested in volunteering and you are under 18 but will be turning 18 during the semester, you can still fill out an application and we will try to work you in during the semester.
