The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Our Adult Literacy area is full of resources to help you and your student succeed!
Did you know that 1 in 5 American adults (20%) are functionally illiterate? Make a difference that lasts a lifetime! Help adults read and write better. Volunteers needed to work 1 -2 days a week for an hour or two each visit. Training and materials provided. Tutoring takes place in the Literacy Office of the Santa Fe Springs City Library.
Training consists of a short online course along with a 1-2 hour in person one-on-one session.
We ask all tutors for at the very least a 3 month commitment to the program.
