Drive by CIELO on any given weeknight and you’ll see a bustle of activity after classes have ended. “If you hang around at night after things are closing up, nobody wants to go home,” says Board Chair Sherry Sullivan. “They’re talking and talking. It’s a happy place.”
Being part of that happy place is what drives people throughout Thurston County to volunteer, donate, and sponsor events that CIELO hosts. Get involved and you’ll soon discover that what you get is at least equal to what you give. Just ask Mary, a volunteer ELL teacher.
“CIELO builds bridges for all of us who volunteer as teachers and tutors,” she says. “It builds bridges for children and young adults as well as for adult learners. This is where hope lives.”
