Literacy Connections is looking for people who love reading, who want to share the gift of literacy in the English language with an adult learner. No previous teaching experience is necessary! New volunteers are required to attend a free Orientation session, after which they will complete the online training module, which can be adapted to fit most schedules.
Our next Orientation Session will be held at the Hudson Area Library, Tuesday, June 18th from 10 am-12 noon. The follow-up session is scheduled for Tuesday, July 23rd at the same time and location. At the Orientation session you will learn about the difference between Basic Reading and teaching English as a Second Language. You will also learn more about Literacy Connections’ other volunteer opportunities, and receive your login information to begin the online tutor training module.
You can sign up for the Tutor Training by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 518-828-1792 ext 104. Please provide your name, e-mail address, phone number and area where you would like to volunteer when registering.
Literacy Connections’ Columbia and Greene County Office is located within the office of the Hudson Area Library and regular hours are Tuesdays and Thursdays 10 am to 5 pm, Wednesdays 1-8 pm and Fridays from 10 am-3 pm.
