Whittier Area Literacy Council, Inc.

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 47 people are interested

At the present time, we only provide virtual services of literacy and/or ESL tutoring to adults and children who are in need of better skills. Tutor training is provided. Community volunteers can help children succeed in school and adults reach their career or life goals. "So many students, including adult students, need one-on-one help and can't afford it. Just two hours a week can completely change a person’s life." For more information on the services that we offer, visit our website at www.walcread.org or call us at (562) 698-6598 to schedule an appointment and become a volunteer.

For the last 56 years we have been proudly serving the Whittier community, as well as the communities of Pico Rivera, Montebello, La Habra, La Mirada and Hacienda Heights. The mission of the Whittier Area Literacy Council is to build a stronger, more literate community by connecting those who can help with those who need it the most. We provide our students with flexible scheduling, confidentiality, and a personally designed curriculum that matches their individual needs.
