Back to school time is a second chance for adult learners

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. 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 three tutor trainings across its two-county service region. At the main office in Port Henry, an orientation will be held on Oct. 1 at 1 p.m. There will be an orientation in Malone on Oct. 7 at 6 p.m., and in the Tri-Lakes region, the orientation will be held on Oct. 15 at 5 p.m.

For more information please contact your local Literacy Volunteer office at the following phone number: Port Henry - 546-3008; Tri-Lakes – 891-5567; and Malone – 483-9366. If you know anyone who could benefit from our services, then suggest they call their local Literacy Volunteers office.
