Adult Literacy Tutor Information Night

Short Title: 
Adult Literacy
Location: 
Meeting Room B
Audience: 
Adults

In the United States there are 30 million adults who can’t read well enough to understand a newspaper article at the eighth grade level or fill out a job application. Currently over 100,000 adults are on waitlists to get paired with a literacy tutor at this time. Find out how you can get involved and share your love of reading with an adult in need. This is a fantastic volunteer opportunity that will make a great difference in someone’s life. We will go over how tutor training works (15 hours on March 3rd, 10th and 17th from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm) and what’s necessary to become a tutor—just 2 hours a week. No formal training in education is required and you don't have to make any commitments right away. Just show up and find out what adult literacy is all about! If you are unable to attend this information session and are still interested in adult literacy tutoring opportunities, please give us a call or stop by the Reference desk and ask for Kristy.
