Pen Pal

Exchange letters with your assigned elementary-aged pen pal once a month during the school year. This program offers students an opportunity to work on their reading, writing, and social skills; while offering you a meaningful volunteer experience from the comfort of your own home. Volunteers are asked to participate in an end of the school year Pen Pal Party, were you will have the chance to meet your pen pal(s) in person! Programs are located in the School Districts of Waukesha and Menomonee Falls.


“Glad for the opportunity. It makes my heart feel good,” –Sheryl
“Thank you for the opportunity. This program is a learning experience for me too!” – Ann
“I can’t tell you what I felt in my heart. They were so excited over something so small. It doesn’t take much to make an impact, just open your heart.” – Nancy, on meeting her pen pals for the first time
