New Tutor Training Dates

In October, we will continue to offer new tutor training online via Zoom. Volunteers who complete the training virtually can choose to tutor students in-person, online, or using a combination of methods. 
Our student waitlist is growing, and we'd love to train new volunteers to help meet the needs of the adults who come to us for assistance. Becoming a volunteer tutor will enable you to make a profound difference in a person's life.
Our next training session: 
  • Tuesdays, 10:00-12:00 p.m. 
  • October 12, 19, 26 
If you’re interested in becoming a Literacy Volunteer or learning more, visit literacyforall.org/tutors.
