Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
To improve the quality of life for all residents of Macomb County by working to eliminate adult illiteracy.
Macomb Literacy Partners tutors change lives by providing one on one adult literacy tutoring. Our adult students need assistance with reading, writing and, in some cases, the English language.
Tutors meet their student for 2 hours per week, at a Macomb County Library of their choice, at a time that is convenient for the tutor.
Volunteer tutors are required to complete a two hour Tutor Informational Session, a 12 hour Basic Literacy Tutor Training Workshop and 3 hours of self-study activities. Tutors are trained to assess the learner's reading and writing levels, interests, and goals; how to recognize the best teaching method for the learner; and to prepare lesson plans. Volunteers earn a certificate at the successful completion of the tutor training workshop. Tutors are asked to make a commitment to a learner(s) for one year.
