Greenville Literacy Association always needs new volunteers. Flexible volunteer opportunities are available to teach reading, writing, math, computer skills, Pre-GED (Social Studies, Science), and English as a Second Language to adult students. We could not possibly provide the services we do without our community’s generous giving of itself as volunteers. In addition to tutoring, we receive countless hours in donated time for the annual Book Sale, sending out mailings and performing general office tasks. Please consider spending some time with us. Every minute helps. See below for volunteer opportunities.
