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.
Educate Adults to Communicate with Confidence in a Multicultural World.
Offer free classes to adults to improve their communication skills. Classes include our ACE program; a class designed for adults with learning challenges and disabilities teaching them to read and write.
I started volunteering with CMC in March 2013, and still continue to date. It's almost a second home to me now! The organization has good values, the staff are supportive and friendly, and the students I work with are wonderful and continue to inspire me every time I teach them.

The CMC is a great place to work as a volunteer. The management are great at matching volunteers with students and very supportive. They provide a lot of information about how to handle the lessons, so you don't feel too overwelmed if it's your fist time teaching (as it was for me). If you love to work with people, are enthousiastic and willing to learn as well as teach, this is definitely the right place for you.
Volunteering has giving me the opportunity to give back to our community. The Multicultural Community Center is where I started as a Literacy Tutor. Here you fine a great staff motivated to help you help others improve upon their lives and reach new goals. As a volunteer my life has been enriched every time one of our students overcome a new challenge. When we know better we do better. Volunteer!
You can't control outcomes
but you can dare to
pursue your desires.
I have been volunteering as a tutor for almost three years. As a former teacher, I find it so refreshing to work with motivated adults. My student always makes me feel needed and important. You really can change a life with a few hours a week.

I am one of the Program Coordinators for this program. We LOVE our volunteers and they love coming to the center to volunteer. You will get way more out of it then you give. Come have fun with us, you will not be sorry.
