Make a difference. Be a volunteer for literacy!
To participate as a volunteer in an adult literacy program, you do not have to have teaching experience. Like The Learning Place, most non-profit adult literacy groups depend on volunteers to provide both the educational services they offer and other organizational support functions that are needed. And like The Learning Place, adult literacy groups provide training programs for volunteer tutors as well as student reading materials and workbooks that are specifically targeted to the needs of adults. Your commitment to the literacy movement will help us build a stronger a community.
As a volunteer, you bring to The Learning Place unique life experiences, skills, and interests to work with and help others. You can share and help develop the excitement that reading, writing, and other educational skills bring to your student's life.
When you give your time and expertise to literacy, you get back: the satisfaction of improving someone's quality of life, new skills, and personal growth; and even a little something to add to your resume.
