Family Literacy Training for Volunteers

Would you like to help an adult meet a learning goal?
Tutors are needed to assist adult learners with a variety of needs: English as a Second Language, basic technology skills, reading, writing or math. Learners come from all walks of life and range in age from 19 to 84. If you are patient, flexible, have a sense of humour and a desire to help others achieve their goals, then consider volunteering as an Outreach Worker for Literacy (OWL). Free training for OWLs will take place this April, dates and times to be determined. For more information contact program coordinator Marci at firstname.lastname@example.org.
