The organization has an average of 70 volunteers each month who donated more than 14,000 of their time in 2016, teaching a variety of subjects and programs. The Kern Literacy Council is thinking outside of the box to increase literacy in Kern County.
Kern residents are able to receive free tutoring from one of our 100 trained tutors.
KLC can help you learn to read, write, do math, pass your GED exam, prepare you for your citizenship test, and teach you strategies to read to and with your children! Call us at 661-324-3213.
