Helping America's most vulnerableā„¢

Adult literacy donation drive

What we need for our adult learners

The Volunteers of America Education Center works to provide literacy, language, and diploma services to residents of the surrounding Cedar-Riverside community. VOAEC has recently created a brand-new tutoring area that is in great need of some basic supplies to assist the adult learners and their volunteer teachers.


Call 612-375-0700 and ask for Wali.
