Proceeds will benefit Partners in English Language Learning (PiELL), a nonprofit that provides free, one-on-one tutoring in English as a second language to Nevada County adults. PiELL uses volunteer tutors, who are trained during a two-day session (the next training begins Sept. 30). After training, the tutors are matched with an adult student. Tutors meet with their students for an average of one to two hours per week at a location convenient to them. For information on tutoring, call 530-265-2116 or email admin@piell.org.
