How can I help JCALP?
JCALP is a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit agency. We are funded and operate through charitable donations, both monetary and in-kind. Please contact JCALP email@example.com/ 660-429-5442 to learn more about giving a tax-deductible donation to our program.
How does JCALP work?
Any adult 16 and older interested in learning more can come to JCALP for help with reading, writing, or basic math. A very short reading test tells us how best to help learners. Learners are paired with tutors and can help plan their course for reaching literacy goals! The service is FREE, though some wish to pay for the cost of their books.
Can I work with the same tutor again?
Learners and tutors can work together for as long as is mutually agreed upon. Many of our learners develop warm relationships with tutors and achieve many of their goals with the guidance of the same tutor.
What subjects are offered?
We provide free, volunteer, trained tutors to assist adults who are interested in improving their skills in basic reading, writing, and math, English as a second language, and special reading assistance. We assist students who are attending the HiSET (GED) prep programs (MOLearns.com)
I want to help people learn.
Thank you! We would love to have you join our team of volunteers. All you need to do is fill out the contact form here, call or stop by the JCALP office. Tutor training workshops are held to prepare volunteer tutors to work with learners. People like you are the reason this program works! It is a rewarding to see the learners improve in skill and confidence.
