Volunteering with Washtenaw Promise

WASHTENAW PROMISE is a non-profit organization with a mission to help improve educational opportunity and success for children who live in Ypsilanti, Michigan with the challenges of poverty. We work primarily with young children, ages 3-6 and their families. We have several opportunities for volunteers to engage with young children in truly meaningful ways. You can literally change educational outcomes for the better and make a real difference in the life of a child. We’ll guide you through your experience and work together to help make your time investment rewarding for you and the kids.

Please let us know that you care about the future of children in our community and that you’re willing to help. Together we can give every child the opportunity to succeed, and that’s what every child deserves! You can get started by filling out the form below and we’ll get back to you within 24 hours with next steps. We look forward to working with you!
