“You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you.
What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.” Jane Goodall
Volunteer Tutors/Instructors are the backbone of PBALC. They meet with our adult students in one-to-one, small group, or small class settings and provide instruction, encouragement, and feedback. Tutors receive special training in adult education, English language instruction, and cultural sensitivity. They are also provided with continual support and resources by the PBALC staff. No prior teaching experience is necessary.

Volunteer tutors/instructors must be 18 years of age or older, have a high school diploma or equivalent, and the desire to help make a difference in our community.
