Volunteer Opportunities

Driver’s Education

Everyone wants to earn their driver’s license! Volunteers work one on one or in small groups to help new arrivals navigate all aspects of earning a driver’s license through registering and insuring a new car. Volunteer jobs include helping people study for their written test, helping people schedule appointments with the DMV, attending appointments with people, practicing driving, teaching basic car maintenance, helping navigate used car searches, and helping people register a car and find insurance.

After-School Tutor

Soft Landing Missoula provides in-person tutoring for elementary through college-aged refugee students to support their academic success. Tutors work one-on-one or in small groups to help students with assignments and homework. Tutors must be comfortable working closely with students and commit to a regular schedule. Regular tutoring for middle and high school students takes place on Tuesdays and Thursday afternoons between 3-6pm in a group setting. Other tutor matches are made as needed.

Tutoring will resume in September.
