Commit as much or as little of your time and volunteer with youth in the Ypsilanti Community!

Become a Pen Pal.

Pen Pals is a year-long program that focuses on building relationships through the loveliest form, letters! Every week, you will be looking forward to writing or receiving a letter from your 3rd, 4th or 5th grade Pen Pal. And at the end of the year, you will get to meet your pen pal and give them the final letter!

The time commitment is small and the reward is immeasurable. Write a letter on your own time, decorating it how you like or stop in the VISION office for some cool stationary and ideas! Earn LBC credit and volunteer hours and bring some smiles to local classrooms.
