Volunteers

When it comes to our volunteers, we want to make sure that they understand our core values. TEACH – Trust, Excellence, Accountability, Collaboration, and Honesty & Integrity.

Volunteer Tutoring Opportunities

We are a volunteer-based organization. Our volunteers are our family and we appreciate the hard-work and dedication they provide for the children and adults in our community. There are several, volunteer tutoring opportunities available at the Palmetto Literacy Council and we are looking to fill those opportunities.

Who are our Volunteers?

Anyone who wishes to join

Our tutoring volunteers come from all walks of life and want to improve the literacy rates in our community. They are retired educators, government workers, and business people. They are currently working full-time as educators, government workers, and business people. Our volunteers are also people who do not work full- or part-time jobs and want to help the community.

The volunteers in our organization may tutor school-age children and/or adults. The volunteers may also be interested in serving on our Board of Directors to help guide the organization toward our goals. Or our volunteers may assist in the operation of the office to ensure the success of the organization to thrive and benefit as many members of our community as needed.

Get Started: Volunteer Tutoring

We'll Help Get You Started Right Away

The first step for any volunteer is to contact us to let us know they are interested. We’ll ask that you download the application packet, we can send it to you, or you can complete it at a Volunteer Orientation. We’ll do a criminal background check and invite you to a training session.

We’re rocking and rolling after training! Once that training commitment is complete, your doing what you signed up to do! A monthly report, due on the 1st of the month helps us track volunteer hours and/or student progress.

We can’t wait to work with you as a member of Palmetto Literacy Council!

Strength-Based Language!

We use strength-based language. What is strength-based language? We talk about where you are and what do we need to do next. It has nothing to do with “should”, “could”, or “would.” It has everything to do with finding out where we are and figuring out where we want to go and how. What happened in the past, is just that, the past. Let’s move forward!
