Indeed, TLC is in need of volunteers to serve our students and families in a large array of roles:

  • Volunteer Tutor: Commitment of one hour per week to work one-on-one tutoring a student in reading and writing. We will plan all lessons and activities for you—you just tell us what day and time works for you and we will match you with a student! Tutoring sessions take place Monday – Thursday from 3:00 – 7:00pm.
  • Enrichment Volunteer: Serve as a teacher’s assistant in our after school clubs, leading small-group activities and working one-on-one to provide extra student support. All clubs take place Monday – Thursday from 3:00 – 5:00 and flexible volunteer schedules are possible.
  • Family Literacy Volunteer: The possibilities are endless! Serve as a teacher’s assistant in our Preschool (flexible volunteer schedules are possible) or our Adult ESL Classes (Monday or Wednesday from 5:30 – 7:00pm). Implement activities and help manage K – 5 students in our Late Night Lit Program (Monday & Wednesday from 5:30 – 7:00pm). We repeat—the possibilities are endless!
