Volunteer Your Services

Many English language programs, for children as well as adults, need volunteer tutors to complement the students' classroom experiences. A number of programs also have full-time positions for volunteer coordinators.

Other avenues to explore include talking to coordinators of the community literacy program in your area or visiting your local library and government offices to research literacy volunteer opportunities. Organizations to contact include colleges, universities, high schools, and religious organizations. These organizations can help you connect with the English language or literacy volunteer programs in your area.
