Love learning? If that's a resounding yes! and you want a flexible volunteer opportunity this may be for you!

Literacy Mid-South has learners that are working on their own with Auto Tutor, an independent, web-based tutoring program. We still want to check in with them, make sure they are on track, don't have questions, and are making progress toward their goals.

This is where you come in! You will:

  • call, text, and/or email learners to check in with them bi-weekly
  • become familiar with the program in order to answer questions
  • check on their progress in the platform
  • refer clients to other social services
  • be an encouraging, positive voice clients can rely on while with LMS

Training will be provided.

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.
