Volunteer Tutors

Volunteer Tutors come and help out at the Literacy Center twice a week for an hour each time. Either on Monday and Wednesday or on Tuesday and Thursday.

Youth (must have completed the fourth grade) through adults are always welcome to volunteer as tutors.

UNFORTUNATELY DUE TO THE COVID-19 GATHERING RESTRICTIONS  and social distancing guidelines, WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO HAVE VOLUNTEER TUTORS FOR OUR SUMMER 2020 or Fall 2020 SESSIONs
