Adult Basic Literacy tutors needed!
4 people are interested
Looking for a rewarding volunteer opportunity? Become an adult literacy tutor! Basic Literacy tutors help an English-speaking adult improve their reading and writing skills. Some tutors also help adult students with basic math or basic computer literacy skills. Tutors make a minimum commitment of two hours per week for at least six months. Incoming tutors must attend a free, full-day tutor training session provided by the New Mexico Coalition for Literacy. After training, tutors are matched with an adult student. The student-tutor team maps out specific short- and long-term goals set by the student; student goals might include attaining a High School Equivalency certification or passing a Driver's Licence exam; understanding prescription medication labels, filling out medical paperwork, or other health-related literacy goals; reading to children or grandchildren; registering to vote, etc. The Rio Arriba Adult Literacy Program (RAALP) provides, books and learning materials, and on-going support for tutors and tutor-student pairs. We currently have student-tutor pairs meeting in the greater Espanola area, in Abiquiu, and in Los Alamos/White Rock.
We'll work with your schedule.
