General Information

  • Volunteer Opportunities / Responsibilities: LCMC relies on volunteers to carry out most of our services. In fact, we are one of the largest volunteer-based organizations in Montgomery County! LCMC offers a wide variety of volunteer jobs:

    - Board Members provide leadership for the overall organization. The Board meets monthly and all members serve on one or more committees.

    - ESL (English as a Second Language) & Basic Literacy Tutors work with small groups or one-on-one. Tutors meet with their adult students 2 hours per week, at a location close to their home or work. LCMC conducts tutor training workshops, where tutors learn techniques to help adults learn to read, write, and/or speak English.

    - Tutor Contacts collect monthly data from tutors and provide support to the hundreds of tutors active at any one time.

    - Student Support Aides and Teaching Assistants support instructional staff in the ESL classroom-based program.

    - Volunteer teams of lead teachers and classroom assistants teach “English for Daily Living” life-skills classes designed for parents of Montgomery County Public School students.

    - Conversation club facilitators help new English learners to practice and develop their skills in American idiomatic English in a supportive and friendly environment.

    - Instructional volunteers tutor learners at pre-GED levels in reading and/or math.

    - Staff support volunteers assist with a variety of tasks at the LCMC office.

    - Special event volunteers help with fundraisers and/or other programs.
