UNION COUNTY—Literacy Volunteers of Union County is currently recruiting new tutor volunteers. The non-profit, volunteer driven organization aims to improve the lives of adults by teaching them to read, write and speak English so they can participate more fully in family, workplace and community life.
Last year, the organization, working in conjunction with Literacy Volunteers of Plainfield Public Library, provided 623 adult learners with 16,293 hours of instruction and trained 100 new tutors.
Tutors meet with their students one hour a week at public libraries throughout Union County. Volunteers do not need any teaching experience and it is not necessary to know a foreign language to become a volunteer.
Literacy Volunteers has begun registration for the spring new tutor training workshop series. This six part series will be held at the Presbyterian Church in Westfield located at 140 Mountain Avenue East, Westfield. The dates of the workshop sessions are: April 20, 22, 27, May 4, 6 and May 11. The workshops begin at 6:30 p.m. and conclude at 9 p.m. Attendance is required at all sessions to become a certified tutor.
