SAL counts on the community to make our work possible in many different ways. If you have been inspired by a SAL event or moved by our Writers in the Schools program, please consider joining us to help make our ongoing work possible in one of the following ways. It takes a village to make our programming possible, and we would love your help!

Volunteers do many things from ushering at our events, to assisting with mailings and other administrative tasks, to working on our annual Words Matter Benefit.
