Adult Literacy Program volunteer tutor (Literacy Together)

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Idealist.org

Recruiting Organization: Literacy Together

The Adult Literacy Program teaches reading, writing, spelling, and math to adults who read at or below a basic skills level. This program serves approximately 50 students per year. Students come to Literacy Together because they want to improve job prospects, help their children in school, enroll in a High School Equivalency program, and better navigate the world around them.

Tutoring takes place for one hour twice each week at times and locations that are mutually convenient for students and their tutors.

Although English is their native language, Adult Literacy students struggle with recognizing individual sounds, written words, and comprehending a sentence or longer passage. They comprise a diverse group in terms of educational background, socioeconomic status, personal goals, and learning styles. Many are challenged by learning differences such as dyslexia. All Adult Literacy students courageously take the step to give reading another chance.

We are currently offering our training online, and our tutors have the option of meeting online or in person with their students.

Please follow this link to volunteer with us.
