Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Our objective is to help adults improve their literacy skills. We strive to open pathways for adult students to obtain a high school equivalency diploma, and secure vocational education and employment opportunities.
We offer free, one-on-one instrcution for adults in basic literacy and English leanguage learning. Our program is based on one-on-one interaction, to meet the specific needs of learners, as many native-born clients historically did not perform well in classic classroom environments, and many immigrants and refugees may have had little or no schooling in their home countries.
New tutors initially attend four workshops, for a total of 12 hours of initial training in the area of Basic Literacy (reading & writing) or English Language Learning. Once training is complete, tutor and student pairs are matched, based on availability and location, and meet for at least 2 hours each week in a public location.
Tutoring sessions are structured with individual learning plans for each student, written by professional staff, and intensive, consistent instruction is provided. Individual conferences are held every three months with students and tutors to review progress and plan for the next three months of the program. Professional development is given to tutors on an individual basis to ensure they receive the information most pertinent to their student’s needs including learning disabilities, literacy foundations, reading comprehension, vocabulary, grammar, and comprehension.
