The non-profit Central Coast Literacy Council has been around since 1983, teaching English for free to anybody who walks through their doors, no matter where they came from. Whether you’re an illegal immigrant, a doctor, a homeless person, or a foreign-born grandparent hoping to better communicate with your grandchildren, the CCLC will help you. Based in Santa Maria and with various class locations throughout northern Santa Barbara County, the CCLC is able to make a difference in people’s lives and futures largely due to the generosity of its all-volunteer staff of tutors, and the donation of office and classroom space. And they are always looking for tutors, who they will train for free.
