Volunteers will be assisting with Muncie Public Library's Great Achievers after school program. We serve children from grades 1st-5th. Volunteers would be assisting the classroom teachers in classroom management, providing homework assistance, and talking and playing with the children throughout the program.

We will not be accepting volunteer applications or sign ups after February 28th, 2022. This is to ensure consistency with the children. Additionally, you must volunteer at least biweekly for the entire semester (not including breaks, holidays, illness, emergency, etc).
