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.
Imagine if you could not read to your child, fill out a job application, or write an email? An estimated 440,000 adults in San Diego County struggle with these skills. The Carlsbad City Library Learning Center works with English-speaking adults who wish to improve their reading, writing, and computer skills to meet their life goals. We provide all of the tools for you to be successful as a tutor including extensive training, free books and materials. If you are patient, caring and wish to make a difference in an adult’s life, please sign up to volunteer.
