UNION COUNTY — Literacy Volunteers of Union County, a non-profit organization that helps adults to improve their reading, writing or English conversation skills, is recruiting new tutor volunteers.
The organization will hold a series of new tutor training workshops to provide volunteers with the skills needed to work with adult learners in Union County. The next workshop series is scheduled at the Linden Public Library, 31 East Henry Street on Jan. 29, Feb. 5 and 19. 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 Literacy Volunteers’ network of volunteer tutors, adult learners in the program have been able to get better jobs and become more productive members of the community. Although the program’s tutors meet at libraries throughout Union County, the greatest need for tutors is in the towns of Elizabeth and Plainfield.
To become a volunteer tutor you must be 18 years old. You do not need prior teaching experience, and no foreign language is required.

There is a $40 non-refundable registration fee. Need based scholarships are available to cover this charge. You may also register by calling Susan at 1-908-755-7998 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
