 JCLC values the gifts of time and talent from our volunteers. Community volunteers make it possible for JCLC to carry out our mission of strengthening communities through literacy. 

Volunteer talents are utilized in a variety of ways:  

  • Instructors/Tutors & substitute instructors teach during established sessions.


  • Board members

  • Community advocates share JCLC information at community events

  • Short -term Goal Guides - assisted individuals in earning a specific credential or strengthening a specific skill (using email, creating a resume).

  • Special Project Volunteers- help with projects that help JCLC operate efficiently and use our resources effectively.
