Volunteer Tutor Training

Save the Date: Saturday, April 26, 2014 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Seeds of Literacy has a great need for volunteer tutors!

Our city of Cleveland sports a 69% illiteracy rate. In 2007, Cleveland ranked 2nd in the nation in terms of people in poverty, according to the US Census Bureau. Clearly there is a strong connection between illiteracy and poverty, but you can help to break it!

Seeds of Literacy has a great need for volunteer tutors. Tutors work individually with students to improve reading, writing and math skills, offer encouragement and support, and help students develop confidence and positive attitudes about learning.

This tutor training will introduce you to the organization as well as to our students' advancement process, the differences in working with adult students, and the GED.
