tutor workshop webCan you spare one hour a week to make a difference in someone’s life? If the answer is yes, then the SVHEC Volunteer Literacy Program needs you!

The Volunteer Literacy Program is recruiting new tutors for its Adult Basic Education and English as a Second Language tutoring programs. Interested individuals are invited to attend a new tutor training luncheon on January 23rd from 12:00pm to 2:00pm in the SVHEC’s Berneche Conference Room.

Volunteer Literacy tutors work one-on-one with students to help them increase their reading or English language speaking skills. No prior teaching experience or foreign language skills are required, and tutors need only commit one or two hours a week to make a difference. The Volunteer Literacy Program provides training, resources, and support for tutors to ensure their success.
“I hope to see members of our community commit to helping others in the New Year.  As little as an hour a week can really make a difference in someone’s life,” said Meagan Owen, SVHEC Workforce Training Resource Specialist.

Get started by attending the Volunteer Literacy Tutor Training Luncheon on January 23rd. Call Meagan Owen at 434-572-5566 to RSVP for the luncheon or to learn more about the Volunteer Literacy Program. An RSVP to the luncheon is required for meal planning purposes.
