Volunteer opportunity description

  1. Do you believe in the creative possibilities of young minds?

  2. Are you looking for an opportunity to encourage young people?

  3. Is supporting our future something you want to be a part of?

If you answered “YES” to those questions and can spare 5-10 hours over the course of 12 weeks, then join us. Become a Champion.

Young people have interests, passions, and the desire to deeply engage in their own learning and development. GripTape makes this possible by giving youth decision-making control over what and how they learn, small grants to pursue a topic they're passionate about, and a Champion to encourage them along the way. That's where YOU come in!

Here's what former Champion, Laura Johnson, shared about her experience:

"If you’d like to meet some fascinating people, then I recommend being a GripTape Champion. The youth I’ve encountered, both current and past Challengers, are kind, engaging, and much smarter than I am.........It’s been refreshing to be part of their journeys, which has been a journey of my own. I’ve learned that someone else’s energy and talent can be inspirational. I’ve learned there’s a gift that costs nothing but means everything — saying to someone, 'I believe in you.'"

This opportunity is perfect for:

  • College students seeking volunteer hours

  • Professionals within the education/youth-development space

  • Adults who have a deep, genuine interest in the learning experiences of young people

Still unsure? Take a look at this inspiring video and hear directly from youth and members of the team!


  • Spare 5-10 hours over the course of 12 weeks, then join us.
  • Work remotely with Challengers who apply to GripTape.
  • Interest in helping others achieve their goals.
