You can change a life by helping adults in the community learn to read, write and communicate better in English.... Help somebody achieve their personal goals.... Help change a life. Be a Tutor!
Becoming a tutor is easy. After a brief online orientation you will be eligible to take tutor training which, for now, is online! After satisfactorily completing training you will be ready to work with your adult learner; once a week for at least one hour.
Since the shelter in place order, we have taken the tutoring program online and have found that tutoring is a perfect virtual volunteer opportunity. We hope to resume face to face tutoring as soon as it is safe to do so.
