Our Skills in Computers & Literacy for Employment (SCALE) program focuses on teaching adults basic computer and literacy skills (vocabulary, spelling, using email, filling out online forms, or basic Word/Excel formatting). (NOTE: This is NOT an ESL program.) Tutors work in weekly 2-hour classes with their assigned student, and this commitment is for one semester. Training and lesson plans are provided, and a Session Leader is available every class to offer you and your student support as needed.
FALL SEMESTER 2019 is Sep 16-Dec 14
