Connecting with the kids and seeing them realize how fun, versatile, and meaningful writing can be … There is so much laughter in every RAWK workshop I’ve attended, it’s infectious.
— Brittany Worthington, on the most meaningful part of volunteering with RAWK

RAWK would be nothing without the volunteers who give of their time and skills to make our programming and events remarkable and fun.

Curious how you can help us? The work we do requires the hands and hearts of many volunteers. Interested in working with students? Are you the kind of person who loves to organize events? Do you have a special skill you'd like to share with us?

If you have the skills, the time, or the resources (or any combination of those things) we know just how you can fit into the RAWK community! Fill out the application below, and we'll be in touch.
