Become a Volunteer Tutor
Enroll in a tutor training workshop to learn to teach adults to read or to speak English. New adult learners come in every week asking for help, and we are now reaching out to parents of young children in schools who need literacy services – the need for more tutors is great. Retired teachers are especially welcome for this initiative. View our current schedule of Tutor Training Workshops here.
We are hiring!
The Literacy Council is accepting applicants for a full-time Program Manager, a part-time Workplace Literacy Program Coordinator, and experienced ESOL instructors to conduct Workplace Literacy classes. You will join a collaborative team who display a high degree of professionalism, intercultural sensitivity, a belief in lifelong learning, and a strong commitment to adult learners.
Help us Stuff the Bus!
The Literacy Council is again participating as a collection site for the United Way’s Stuff the Bus School Supply Drive from June 12 through July 31. Stuff the Bus is a way for the community to come together to help young people succeed in school and is a way for the Literacy Council to support family literacy. You can donate cash via the virtual drive or bring new items to our collection bin.
