UNION COUNTY — Literacy Volunteers of Union County recently graduated 21 new volunteer tutors who completed a training workshop series in Westfield. The volunteers became certified to tutor both basic skills and English as a second language after completing the 15-hour workshop.
Literacy Volunteers is a non-profit, volunteer driven organization that improves 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. In addition to one-to-one tutoring, the organization also conducts GED preparation classes for adult learners in the community.
Literacy Volunteers has begun registration for the next new tutor training workshop series. This four-part series will be held at St. Thomas the Apostle Byzantine Catholic Church, located at 1407 St. Georges Avenue, Rahway. The first session begins on Tuesday, Sept. 21, from 7 to 9:30 p.m. The remaining sessions are Thursday, Sept. 23 from 7 to 9:30 p.m., and Saturdays, Sept. 25 and Oct. 2 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Attendance is required at all sessions to become a certified tutor. There is a $40 non-refundable registration fee to cover the cost of materials used for training. A need-based scholarship is available for the registration fee.
