Help highly motivated adults fulfill a dream to learn to read!
Volunteer tutors serve hundreds of students each year through Literacy Action of Central Arkansas. This program matches one adult tutor with one adult student. Volunteers may choose to work either with an adult who needs literacy instruction or with non-native adults who want to learn to read and speak English. The different needs and objectives of individual students are carefully matched with the strengths and experience of particular tutors.
Tutors work one-on-one with students in a public setting. We provide tutor training and all materials necessary to work with the student. We conduct volunteer tutor training sessions at our classrom in the Central Arkansas Library System main library branch in downtown Little Rock or the Faulkner County Library in Conway. You may register for any tutor training workshop on our website www.literacylittlerock.org.
Make a difference in a family's life - learning to read helps parents read to their children and English-as-a-Second Language (ESL) students to communicate with their children's teachers; it helps adults get jobs with family sustaining salaries; and it gives native and non-native English speakers dignity and the ability to talk with health care progfessionals, fill out an application or simply go grocery shopping!
