Volunteer Opportunities

The CWLC relies on community volunteers to help fulfill our mission. There are several ways you can volunteer your time and talent.

Become a Tutor

Tutors work with adults one-on-one, or in small groups. Tutors work in one or more of our program areas including Adult Basic Education (ABE), English Language Learning (ELL/ESL), and Computer literacy.

The council provides training and support for people interested in tutoring.

Tutors do not need a teaching background; most tutors don’t have one. You need patience and willingness to help adults develop the self-confidence to learn. Training is required before tutoring.

Learn more about rewards of tutoring on this informational page.  You’ll see

  • an informative Position Description
  • an online tutor application
  • alternatively, a downloadable PDF
