Do you want to make a difference? Volunteering with Ometz is a fun and rewarding way to give back to the community! We are currently looking for people to help with the following programs:

Academic/Language Mentoring

As an academic mentor, you will engage and support a student. Volunteers don't just tutor students, they motivate their mentees by providing social, emotional and learning support.

We believe in Maximizing Youth Potential.


Learning & Enrichment Afterschool Program (LEAP)

LEAP mentors provide social, emotional and learning support to elementary and high school students in our after-school program.

GED Literacy Mentor

Volunteer tutors work one-on-one with young adults who are studying and preparing to write their high school equivalency exams. Kosher dinner is provided to participants and tutors.


Income Tax Assistant

As an Income Tax Assistant, you will help people who don't know how to file income taxes or who cannot afford to hire a professional. No prior experience necessary. We'll teach you how to complete and file forms electronically so you can help others.

Individual Mentoring

Volunteers provide one-on-one academic and/or language support (verbal communication skills practice) to mentees ranging from young children to adults.
