LINDEN — Literacy Volunteers of Union County (LV-UC), a non-profit organization that recruits and trains volunteers to work with adults seeking to improve their reading, writing or English conversation skills, will train new tutors starting in January.
The group’s new tutor training workshops provide new volunteers with the skills needed to work with adult learners in Union County. The next workshop is scheduled at the Linden Public Library, 31 East Henry Street in Linden on Jan. 29, Feb. 5 and 12. Feb. 26 is scheduled as a snow day if one is needed. The sessions begin at 9:30 a.m. and conclude at 2:30 p.m.
Through LV-UC’s network of volunteer tutors, adult learners in the program have been able to get better jobs and become more productive members of the community.
To become a volunteer tutor you must be 18 years old. Volunteers do not need prior teaching experience or foreign language knowledge.
