Volunteer working with student


The Literacy Connection is part of the sponsored ministry at The Sisters of Saint Joseph of Boston. We are a non-profit volunteer organization which pairs volunteer tutors in one on one sessions with adult immigrants in need of ESL and literacy skills. Our volunteers are needed at our Brighton location (637 Cambridge Street) as well as in Milton at Fontbonne Academy. Volunteers need to commit to one, one and a half hour session every week for a period of 6 months to one year. Many of our volunteers continue with us through the summer and for several years. Volunteering at The Literacy Connection offers a rich experience for any volunteer at any time in life- whether a student, in between careers, during life changes, and retirement. We work with tutors and provide some training and guidance to help the adult student in need actualize his/her goals.
