Want to Help Plan the On the Road to Literacy Conference?
The On the Road to Literacy Conference is an annual event in April put on by the Literacy Volunteers of Illinois. It is a unique one-day event targeted at providing learning and engagement for adult learners as well as their tutors and teachers. The Program usually brings a busful of learners and tutors down to UIC in Chicago for it.
Dorothy Miaso of the Literacy Volunteers of Illinois is working on putting together the Planning Committee for the conference. She has shared that they would love to have tutors’ perspective represented on this year’s Committee. Details from Dorothy about the requirements are below. Please contact Dorothy at 312-857-1582 or lvaill [at] aol [dot] com to express interest or get more information. Click here for information about last year’s conference.
