Would you recommend Korean American Community Services?

Volunteering as an ESL tutor for KACS has been a great experience so far. The staff takes both students' and tutors' abilities and goals into consideration to make beneficial matches all around. The tutoring schedule and content is up to you, but KACS has good resources and offers support and guidance if needed.
Engage your employees, consumers, or students! VolunteerMatch provides the tools that make community involvement easy.
