Make a difference for the underserved and volunteer as a tutor

Posted

According to a report done by the U.S. Census, high school dropouts will earn $200,000 less than a high school graduate and almost $1 million less than a college grad in their lifetime. For workers without a diploma or GED, even entry-level jobs like a dishwasher or server remain out of reach for most. The Capital Area Literacy Coalition addresses this problem by providing GED certification courses and high school diploma programs at no cost to students. But we need help.

For just two hours a week, you can volunteer at the coalition and make a difference in your community by becoming tutors to students of all ages in need of education. Love Lansing by volunteering for the less fortunate around you. We are a private, non-profit volunteer-run organization serving Lansing for over 30 years.  To inquire about GED, literacy tutoring or donations, feel free to give us a call.
