The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Volunteers at The Immigrant Learning Center, Inc. (ILC) help foreign-born adults learn English as well as gain an understanding of the American Culture. Under supervision of an ILC teacher, classroom volunteers work with students one-on-one or in small groups on conversation, reading, writing or pronunciation. All instruction is in English.
Classes are held mornings from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and afternoons from 12:00 to 3:00 p.m. Volunteers are expected to volunteer for one or more three-hour classes per week for a minimum of six months.
