TLC Needs Volunteers
Local adult and teen volunteers are needed for the Learning Club, which is an after-school tutoring program at El Morro Elementary School for students in grades 2-5 who have been recommended by their teachers as needing additional help with homework.
TLC will operate Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from January through May and is sponsored by the Laguna branch of The American Association of University Women.
