Do you have 4 hours a week to help parents of Shelby County School students practice and improve their English?

Literacy Mid-South's Adult Learning Program is partnering with SCS to provide English Language Learning (ELL) support for parents at Kingsbury and Brownsville Elementary Schools.
ELL sessions will begin in February following volunteer training (January 23 and 30) with Literacy Mid-South Staff.

Ideally, two volunteers will lead a small group two evenings a week for an hour and a half. Both volunteers will help participants practice general conversation using a provided curriculum. Each session will be 10 weeks. You are welcome to volunteer for as many sessions as you like but must commit to at least one full 10-week session.

Please email Lee Chase at lchase@literacymidsouth.org if you are interested.

About Literacy Mid-South

Location:

PO Box 111229, Memphis, TN 38111, US

Mission Statement

Our vision is 100% literacy in the Mid-South. Literacy Mid-South is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to create a community actively engaged in continuous learning. Somewhere between 20% to 30% of adults in the Memphis metro area are functionally illiterate. That means more than just unemployment -- their minds are unused and their dreams are unrealized.

Description

YOU can help. There is no greater gift to give than helping a person succeed. Facilitate learning in the life of an adult who struggles with reading, writing, math and English as a foreign language through Literacy Mid-South's Adult Learning Program and English For You program. Volunteers are able to serve as facilitators to groups of adults or provide individual goal-centered tutoring to an adult learner.
