Drop-in Center AT KAUMAKAPILI CHURCH
Volunteers can assist at our Drop-In-Center in a variety of ways. Some volunteers elect to design or teach components of the class. Others act as teacher's assistants. Volunteers can then help the students with their classwork or practice — it's a casual way to volunteer while giving English Language Learners some individualized assistance.
