Make a difference in someone’s life by volunteering as an English Literacy Tutor for adults!

The South Bay Literacy Council (SBLC) is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to teaching adults to read, write and speak English in the South Bay, Los Angeles area. Students’ goals determine session structure--some tutors coach English conversation in small groups, while others work one-on-one with a student to improve their conversation skills.

You’d commit to meeting weekly with your student(s) online or in-person.

**If you do not live in the Los Angeles area, please ensure the time difference works for you!**

We'll provide training, lesson ideas, and support.

We ask volunteers to make a 9-month commitment due to the time it takes to train and match tutors with students.

To Volunteer:

  • Attend Volunteer Information Meeting (via Zoom)
  • Submit Volunteer Application
  • Complete tutor training
  • Be matched with student(s) based on mutual availability

About South Bay Literacy Council


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.


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 40 years, SBLC has provided group and individual tutoring in Torrance, Hawthorne, Gardena, Wilmington and other South Bay-Los Angeles communities. Since COVID-19 restrictions, we have been tutoring online.

Our training workshops equip volunteers to teach adults how to read, write, and speak English.

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.
