If you can read and write and are passionate about inspiring others to learn, you qualify for the title of "life changer."

Volunteers at the Johnson County Adult Education (JCAE) program help people improve their reading, writing or math skills; earn their Kansas High School Diploma; or improve their English language skills.

Even though Johnson County is considered one of the more prosperous and educationally thriving counties in the state, there are still more than 15% of residents who do not have a high school diploma, and eight percent do not speak English well.

Be a 'life changer'

As a volunteer, you will work with students one-on-one or in small groups in one of JCAE's learning centers. Volunteers commit to volunteering three hours each week for a minimum of six months.

Commitment and perseverance are essentials for both volunteers and students. As a volunteer, you can be instrumental in the success of the students you assist.

Volunteer Orientation

Volunteers have always been a vital part of our students' success and a significant reason why students choose JCAE to help them reach their educational goals. Normally, Literacy volunteer orientations are held each fall and spring for anyone interested in becoming a JCAE volunteer. However, to keep everyone as safe as possible during this pandemic we are limiting face-to-face contact, forcing us to temporarily suspend most JCAE volunteer activity.

At this time there is no upcoming volunteer orientation scheduled. Please check back with us in summer 2021 for a possible fall 2021 orientation date.

For additional information or to be notified when an orientation is scheduled, you may fill out the form below or reach out to Jill Sigler, Volunteer Coordinator, at jsigler@jccc.edu or 913-469-7677.
