South Baldwin Literacy Council
Our volunteers come from all walks of life. They are business people, homemakers, snowbirds and retired teachers, to name just a few. All share one common denominator, a willingness to share their time to benefit a neighbor. Most say they love to read, and that they decided to become involved with the Literacy Council to help others know the joy of reading.
Volunteers serve in many capacities. They are tutors, board members, office help, members of the speakers’ bureau, committee members and fundraisers, etc.
Volunteers can be no younger than 18 years of age and must be able to read, write and speak English. A national criminal background check is done on all volunteers. All tutors are required to attend a training workshop, which is provided free of charge. All tutoring materials are also provided free of charge.
