During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
Our Adult Basic Education (ABE) group tutoring program focuses on helping local adults who struggle with low-literacy (reading/writing below an 8th grade level). Tutors help improve their basic reading/writing skills and VERY rudimentary computer skills (using email, filling out online forms, etc). (Please note: This is NOT an ESL program.) Once trained, you would attend a weekly 2-hour session to work one-on-one with your assigned student for the semester. Weekly lesson plans are provided, and a Session Leader is available every class to offer you and your student support as needed! Weekly sessions to choose from:
