South Bay Literacy Council
We write an online newsletter to communicate with our volunteers and members. The articles are usually 3-4 sentences with a picture. We need a "roving" reporter to help us write articles about current events and human interest stories. The job shouldn't take more than 2 hours per month, but you would probably need some mornings available to talk with our volunteers. The time is definitely flexible. This is an opportunity to get some writing experience, meet fantastic volunteers, demonstrate creativity, and make a difference in the South Bay/Los Angeles community.
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.
