Visit Preschool Classrooms (Pre-Literacy)

Volunteers donate their time 2 to 6 times a school year to visit special needs pre-school classes throughout Springfield Public Schools. Introducing literacy at an early age sets the students up for success later in life. These interactive visits have prepared lesson plans for volunteers and provide free books for the children.

OLC is currently in need of 30+ volunteers for this program!

This is 2hr minimum commitment. 

Visit the Springfield Community Center (Books Come Alive)

Do you have an exciting career that you love? The Springfield Community Center has partnered with OLC to bring in professionals several Mondays each month to learn about their careers. The mission of Books Come Alive is “to build a love of literacy, to invest in children, to bring awareness of community careers and to bridge learning with future potential careers.”

One hour commitment. 

Special Events & Community Fairs 

Pizza Bowl and Trivia Night are OLC’s most exciting events! Up to 30 volunteers are needed per event! If you enjoy a hands-on experience, OLC would love to have your help! We are always looking for outgoing volunteers to help at these events doing tasks such as ticket sales, silent auction assistants, and so much more! Check out more information on events page.
