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 Newland Center, 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 Newland Center, 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 committment to the literacy movement will help us build a stronger a community.
As a volunteer you bring to The Newland Center unique life experiences, skills and interests to work with and help others. You share and help develop the excitement that reading, writing and other education skills bring to your student's life.
Volunteering is a two-way street. At The Newland Center our motto is, "We learn from each other." 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.
