How Can You Help?

The Siena Learning Center relies on our volunteer tutors to provide one-on-one assistance to our adult learners, and donations to help us provide books and materials.

How Can You Help?

Volunteer as a Tutor!

If you speak English, you can teach it.

Many people believe they can’t teach English if they can’t speak the learner’s language.  But if you speak English, you can teach it… we can show you how!
