Volunteer at Work

Game Builds offer local companies the opportunity to host an on-site volunteer opportunity for their employees, give back to the community, and engage in a fun, team building activity. Game Builds challenge team members to communicate and work together to assemble hundreds of fun, hands-on math games. Zeno math games are designed to get kids and the adults in their lives to play math together, giving kids the opportunity to start kindergarten ready and excited to learn math. If your workplace is interested in hosting a game build this January-April, please contact Donor Stewardship Manager, Ari Rosen.

Why Volunteer?


We can’t do it alone. When you direct your time, energy and skills to volunteering with Zeno, you demonstrate to our kids, teachers and families the infinite possibilities that arise from an individual’s relationship with math.


We work directly where elementary kids learn, live and play because it’s here that our attitudes about math and about ourselves are formed. By starting at the source, by starting from the ground up, we’re creating a positive math culture. Your engagement as a Zeno volunteer can help reframe math as fun and relevant so that all kids, teachers and families can build math confidence and lifetime skills.


We commit to ensuring your volunteer experience is rewarding, impactful, and of course, fun! We always add new volunteer opportunities, so keep checking back to find the best assignment for your interests, skills, and schedule.
