Literacy New Jersey exists so all adults have the opportunity to read, write, and communicate effectively. We do this by training volunteer tutors to help adult learners and by supporting a network of literacy programs.
Literacy New Jersey provides free instruction to adults who need help with reading, writing, math and speaking English. Trained volunteer tutors work with adults one-to-one or in small groups to help them improve their language and literacy skills so they can reach their life goals.
- Offers free adult literacy services in twelve counties: Burlington, Gloucester, Mercer, Middlesex, Monmouth, Ocean, Sussex, Warren, Union, Hudson, Atlantic, and Cape.
- Provides comprehensive training to prepare community volunteers to tutor adults.
- Provides professional development, technical assistance, training and other support services to 14 affiliate member programs.
- Develops and disseminates instructional materials and training on key topics in adult literacy.
- Advocates on behalf of a statewide network of programs for increased funding and increased visibility for the need for adult literacy services.
This is a Virtual Opportunity with no fixed address.
