I know, I know. Summer just started, but after you catch a little vacay, think about volunteering. Volunteers are needed at the Vickery Meadow Learning Center, 6329 Ridgecrest.

This summer, you might work an hour or two a week as an adult classroom teacher, activity club teacher or pre-school assistant.

The VMLC is dedicated to improving English literacy levels among non-English speaking adults and their children by offering programs in communication and life skills.

VMLC leaders believe that the ability to understand, read, write and speak English contributes to independence, productivity and the overall wellbeing of the students, their families and the whole community. If you can help, email Amy Glover, adult program director or call 214.265.5057 ext. 12.
