Be a part of someone’s success story by volunteering as a GED and literacy tutor

Posted

If you are reading this, with as little of a donation of time you can be part of raising literacy and opportunity for the underserved members of Lansing’s community. Be a part of someone’s story like Evan. He went through our GED program in three months and is now supporting his family by working as an engineer for an aerospace company.

Arriving in April from Africa, Bob was a certified nurse for 18 years before his journey to the U.S. He reached out to CALC for help with his TOEFL test and is now certified to assist doctors and practice medicine in Lansing. At CALC, there are many ways to help aside from volunteering and tutoring. Book, classroom supply and monetary donations are accepted. $60 covers the recruitment, training and support costs for two volunteer tutors. $75 provides a child struggling in school with seven weeks of free tutoring. $100 covers the costs of diagnosing, matching, tutoring and supporting two students for five weeks of one-to-one tutoring.
