Do you have a friend or family member looking for a rewarding volunteer experience? We want YOU to help spread the word about our upcoming Tutor Training in February.
As you already know, the Literacy Program of Lake County is a partnership between the literacy departments at the Waukegan Public Library, the College of Lake County, and Literacy Volunteers of Lake County. The program matches volunteer literacy tutors with adults who want to improve their basic skills in Reading, Writing and/or Math. Tutoring usually involves a commitment of about two to three hours per week. Tutoring takes place in public places such as libraries or College of Lake County (CLC) sites throughout the county. The greatest need for volunteer tutoring is in the Waukegan, North Chicago, and Zion area.
Volunteer tutors are required to attend our tutor training series before being matched with a student or placed in an ABE (Adult Basic Education) classroom. There is also an orientation before the training which provides more information about the program. Here are the dates for the upcoming orientation and training session:
- Tutor orientation is scheduled for Wednesday, February 5th 2014, at the Waukegan Public Library, from 6:30 to 8:00 pm.
- The training sessions take place on two Saturdays, February 8th (CLC Grayslake Campus, Grayslake, IL)) and February 15th (CLC Lakeshore Campus, Waukegan, IL) from 9am to 4pm. Attending both Saturdays is required.
Tell your friends about your volunteer experience! Anyone interested in learning more about the spring tutor training session should contact Josh Anderson (janderson [at] waukeganpl [dot] info), Rachel Cope (rachelcope [at] waukeganpl [dot] info), or Laura Sherwood (lsherwood [at] clcillinois [dot] edu) for more information.
