Volunteer opportunity description

 Volunteer tutors work with adult literacy students on reading writing and math skills.  All levels of adult basic education up to preparation for GED are included.  Volunteers assist classroom teachers or work with small groups of 8 to 12 students with a co-tutor planning lessons with staff guidance.  Classes are 3-hour sessions held in the morning, afternoon or evening.

Volunteers must be at least 18 years old with a strong command of the English language. Required training for both volunteer tutors and teacher's assistants is provided by Literacy Partners. Training covers strategies for teaching reading, writing, and basic math skills to adult learners, and involves the opportunity to observe or participate in existing groups. Once training is completed  volunteers can tutor in any of our morning, afternoon, or evening programs. Trainings are usually held four times a year. An orientation is required before being invited to training.
