Children's Reading/Math Tutoring Program
Tutoring is provided weekly throughout the school year by dedicated volunteers, to help each child improve their skills and increase their confidence and self esteem. Both tutoring programs are provided on Mondays for children in K thru 12th grade.
Math Tutoring is available from 3:30 - 4:15 pm and Reading Comprehension is available from 4:30 - 5:30 pm. This program is free of charge but enrollment is limited.
If you would like more information on this service, either email us or call our office at (626) 852-7630.
In addition to providing Resource Counseling on Wednesday and Thursday evenings, some clients receive additional support with finding employment, accessing additional resources, and organizing their personal situations in order to take the next steps towards self-sufficiency. Clients are encouraged to ask about this service when visiting with their Resource Counselor. We have volunteers on-hand to meet with clients one-on-one in a semi-private environment to discuss their needs and offer whatever assistance we can provide beyond food and clothing. Many times our volunteers are able to offer resource materials or suggestions for dealing with a particular situation that may be of help to our clients. Our goal is to be as helpful as we can and to assist clients in finding solutions to some of their challenges. Our clients have found this service to be very helpful and encouraging.
We have licensed beauticians who provide 'free' dry haircuts to our clients on Wednesday/Thursday during normal operating hours 5-7 pm. Haircuts are provided on a first come, first served basis on the first and third weeks of the month.
In partnership with Glendora Employment Agency, classes are taught monthly along with individual attention to help clients with job searching, writing resumes and overcoming employment barriers.
