Foundation Communities

Foundation Communities is a local non-profit providing first class, affordable homes and support services for thousands of low-income families and individuals, empowering them with the tools they need to succeed.

About the Learning Center volunteer program: They have 10 Learning Centers around Austin. Volunteer shifts are generally set up from around 3:30-6:00 pm Monday through Thursday during the fall and spring semester. During the summer, the after school programs turn into day camps, which run from around 10 am – 3 pm. Learning Center volunteers provide general classroom support, help with homework assistance, and assist with enrichment activities based on the need of the learning center.

Time Commitment: They ask volunteers to make a commitment to serve a minimum of one shift per week (1-3 hours) for a semester at a time – you choose the day, time, and learning center location that works best for your schedule!
