Alma Reaves Woods - Watts Branch LibraryLos Angeles Public Library10205 Compton AvenueLos Angeles, CA 90002


Volunteer at the Mark Twain, Ascot, or Watts Branch Libraries - all located 5 or 10 minutes away from the 110 S freeway. These libraries serve the diverse patrons in the Compton, South Gate, and Florence-Graham areas, where there is a great need for help with reading, writing and speaking English. Students in our program are both native-born and foreign-born patrons. We interview and assess all potential tutors and students to match pairs who will fit each others' learning styles and schedules. No prior experience is necessary--just a willingness to help. All volunteers are interviewed and receive free online training and teaching materials.
