The South Bay Literacy Council would like to sponsor at least four events per year to meet several goals: socialization, community outreach, and fundraising. The Events Team is responsible for planning parties, conferences, fundraisers, open houses and other special events. We need volunteers to lead this team and/or work on this team.
For retirees, this is an excellent way to stay busy while still having fun.
For young professionals, this is a proven way to get into the marketing, public relations, and special events industry.
No experience necessary, we will train you!
Requirements - Initiative, Tenacity, Creativity, and Energy!
About South Bay Literacy Council
18436 Hawthorne Blvd., Suite 110, Torrance, CA 90504, US
Because we believe literacy is life-changing and empowering, we volunteer to teach adults to read, write, and speak English for free.
The South Bay Literacy Council (SBLC) is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to teaching adults over 18 to read, write and speak English.
For more than 36 years, SBLC has provided group and individual tutoring in Torrance, Hawthorne, Gardena, Wilmington and other South Bay-Los Angeles communities.
Our training workshops equip tutors to serve in one of three programs:
- English as a Second Language (ESL)
- Computer-aided Literacy (CAL)
- Literacy for English Speakers (LES)
Headquartered in Torrance, the organization is an affiliate of ProLiteracy America. We are staffed and operated entirely by volunteers. The council relies solely on private sector donations and receives no government funding.
There is an urgent, ongoing need for more trained volunteers for tutoring and for management support. Be part of the solution and make a real difference in someone's life.
We'll work with your schedule.
