Hi, I'm Shoua. I'm here to help you become a reading tutor. ESLC welcomes people of all backgrounds to guide children through English reading lessons. Literacy tutors work with the same child for an entire semester so he or she can graduate and choose his or her own future.

Why I Volunteer at ESLC

Our volunteers care deeply about literacy and the children we serve, and we are so appreciative to have them. We have a lot of work to do and we are always looking for more people to help us reach our goals. The equation is simple: More volunteers = more students served.
