Target demographics: functionally illiterate adults

Direct beneficiaries per year: 427 adult learners

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: distribute library flyers and advertising materials around our community.

Geographic areas served: the South Bay - Los Angeles area

Programs: English as a Second Language (ESL), Literacy for English Speakers (LES), and Computer-Aided Literacy (CAL)

Because we believe literacy is life-changing and empowering, we volunteer to teach adults to read, write and speak English for free.

Established in 1981 and incorporated in 1987, the South Bay Literacy Council is a non-profit, all-volunteer group dedicated to improving literacy. We offer three programs: 1) English as a Second Language (ESL) for non-English speaking adult learners, 2) Literacy for English Speakers (LES) for native English speakers, and 3) Computer-Aided Literacy (CAL) for any adult learner.

We are located in the South Bay area of Los Angeles. Headquartered in Torrance, CA, the organization is an affiliate of ProLiteracy America.

The council relies solely on private sector donations and receives no federal or state government funding.

Illiteracy contributes to every major social problem facing our cities, counties, state and nation, but illiteracy is a problem with a solution...The South Bay Literacy Council. Be part of the solution!
