About South Bay Literacy Council

Location:

18436 Hawthorne Blvd., Suite 110, Torrance, CA 90504, US

Mission Statement

Because we believe literacy is life-changing and empowering, we volunteer to teach adults to read, write, and speak English for free.

Description

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:

  1. English as a Second Language (ESL)
  2. Computer-aided Literacy (CAL)
  3. 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.
