MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF OUR CLIENTS BY VOLUNTEERING WITH INDO-AMERICAN CENTER!

Literacy Tutors and Instructors

Volunteers can either teach a regular class, a small group or work individually with students. Classes meet Monday-Thursday afternoons, 3 to 5 pm and Saturday mornings, 10 am to noon.

Literacy training is provided, including 12 hours of ELL training through Literacy Works and ongoing observation of staff instructors and seasoned volunteers.
