Who we are

Bull City Classrooms is a nonprofit organization with the goal to get the incredible Durham community involved in local classrooms. Durham teachers are underpaid and overworked — our goal is to address the latter.  Sign up for our upcoming events mailing list today!

What we do

We organize two hour blitz volunteer sessions on Saturday mornings where groups of 20+ volunteers help teachers with whatever they need.  This includes activities such as cleaning/sorting out closets and science experiment kits, making folder packets, and moving desks.  Basically, labor intensive tasks that would take a single teacher a few days, but only two hours for a large group of volunteers. Interested?  Sign up for an event today!

How it works

Most folks don't have the flexibility to commit to volunteering on a regular basis and teachers don't have the bandwidth to commit to having a group of volunteers come in on a regular basis.  That's where we come in.  Teachers and principals contact us on an as-needed basis whenever they need a group of volunteers and we connect them to groups of volunteers.
