Volunteers who’d like to help adults gain skills and confidence in speaking, reading and writing English can get the training they need to help make a difference.
Literacy Volunteers of Charlottesville/Albemarle will present an in-person New Tutor Training session from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Aug. 26 at Northside Library. The organization seeks compassionate, enthusiastic volunteers to provide one-on-one tutoring in English and U.S. citizenship preparation for community residents who are working toward becoming U.S. citizens.
No teaching experience is required.
If you’re interested in helping, but wondering whether becoming a tutor is the right fit for you, information sessions are scheduled for 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. Aug. 8 on Zoom. The virtual sessions will help potential volunteers learn about the LVCA’s mission and its students and get a sense of what becoming a literacy volunteer will require.
Northside Library is at 705 W. Rio Road. Information and registration are available at www.literacyforall.org.
