Literacy Volunteers Recruiting New Tutor Volunteers

PLAINFIELD—Literacy Volunteers of Union County is a non-profit, volunteer driven organization dedicated to making a difference in the lives of adult learners by teaching them basic reading skills, writing and English as a Second Language.

A 15-hour new tutor training workshop series will begin this fall at the Plainfield Public Library, located at 800 Park Avenue.  The first session of the workshop series begins Saturday, Sept. 12, from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. (This is a change from previously published times.)  The remaining sessions continue on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, Sept. 15, 17, 22 and 24 from 6:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m.


Once the workshop is completed, volunteers will be certified to teach both basic reading skills and English as a second language.  Ongoing support is provided to all tutors.

One out of five adults in New Jersey has difficulty reading, writing or communicating in English.  All it takes is one hour a week to make a difference in the life of an adult who wants to learn.  For more information, or to register, contact Susan at 908-755-7998 or email

There is a $40 registration fee to cover the cost of training and materials needed to complete the workshop.  Need based scholarships are available to cover the $40 registration fee.
