Literacy and Education Virtual Volunteer Opportunities

Open Opportunity


Here are links to Virtual Volunteer Opportunities regarding literacy and education:

Bookshare.Org-Bookshare offers thousands of books to people with reading disabilities. As an online volunteer, you can either scan books to be added to the collection or edit books that have been scanned.      


iCouldBe-Volunteers mentor students remotely about their career goals and dreams.      


Learning Ally-Learning Ally empowers dyslexic, blind and visually impaired students to succeed in school. Use your voice talent to bring juvenile fiction books to life; listen to juvenile and popular fiction and provide feedback to narrators around fluency, tone, mispronunciations and audio quality; conduct quality assurance playing books back just like students will, and checking for anything that would result in a less-than-enjoyable listening experience.      


Librivox-Librivox volunteers read and record chapters of books in the public domain (books no longer under copyright) in the USA*, and make them available for free on the Internet. Practically, this means we record books published 95 full years ago or longer. All our recordings (including yours, if you volunteer for us) are also donated into the public domain.     


StoriiTime-StoriiTime lets parents set up a video call with their child and an isolated senior. Seniors can read children’s books to little ones, or kids can read to a senior.


TED Translators -TED Translators are a global community of volunteers who subtitle TED Talks, and enable the inspiring ideas in them to crisscross languages and borders.


Translators Without Borders-Translators without Borders depends on volunteers to translate millions of words, but also to help us run the organization. We work with volunteers who have all kinds of great skills – and many learn new skills that they can use in their jobs.


UPchieve -UPchieve is a free, online platform that connects low-income high school students in the US with live, volunteer coaches (that’s you!) any time they need it. Our volunteer experience was designed to be ultra-flexible because we believe it should be easy for awesome people like you to help students succeed.
