Literacy Volunteers is also seeking volunteers this fall.

“In order to support these adult learners, Literacy Volunteers relies heavily upon dedicated volunteer tutors who provide one-on-one or small group instruction to native and non-native English speakers,” Burke said. “Volunteer tutors are patient, compassionate, flexible and willing to give at least two hours a week to his/her adult learner. Tutors are expected to attend the tutor training prior to being matched with a student.”

Literacy Volunteers will have a tutor training session at its office in Port Henry Tuesday, Oct. 1, at 1 p.m. For more information call Burke at 546-3008.
