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.
Are you interested in helping non-English speakers to practice their conversational skills? If so, become an ESL Conversation Club volunteer at Los Altos Library! The club will be starting on January 29th, and will then be ongoing on Thursdays from 2:30-3:30pm. Volunteers will not actually be teaching English, but rather facilitating by leading members in topical discussions (and explaining vocabulary/grammar as it comes). This would be the perfect opportunity for a retired/current teacher, college student, or anyone with strong English skills and a desire to help others.
Please note: While the contact is based at Woodland Branch, the meeting location is Los Altos (Main) Library... address and map included in listing.
