Volunteer with Odyssey


HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED WITH ODYSSEY?

THERE ARE MANY WAYS!

- Could you organize a group to provide a meal for an Odyssey Class? 

Every Wednesday evening, from September to May, students and faculty sit down together to a hot supper. Many of these meals are organized by groups of people who donate their time and resources to prepare or purchase a meal for an Odyssey class.

- Interested in tutoring an Odyssey student? 
If you are good at writing and editing, math, or a foreign language, you may want to learn more about tutoring with Odyssey.

Many Ways to Give

We are fortunate in that the UW Odyssey community includes many people with great talents and big hearts. Here are a few stories of beautiful people who share their gifts with the Odyssey community.

Web Developer, Nathan Marks (Herkimer Media)

Nathan and the team at Herkimer strongly believe in taking the technology we develop for our clients, and making it available to non-profit organizations that make a difference in our community. We are excited to help the UW Odyssey through our work on the Website.

Meal Provider and Organizer, Sandy Kaufman

Many times a year Sandy organizes a group that provides dinner for the Odyssey class.  Sandy says this about her work with Odyssey: "The students of the Odyssey Project are amazing. Members of my PEO Chapter BC are happy to be able to provide some meals for Odyssey students. I never lack volunteers for this most worthy project."

In Carolyn's words: "Reading opens up the whole world to you."
