Volunteer Tutor Training

Save the Date: Saturday, August 8th, 2015 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Seeds of Literacy has a great need for volunteer tutors to help with free GED preparation and adult education in Cleveland!

Every day you use your literacy skills to figure out sales prices, check your email, make dinner from a recipe, handle your money, and follow instructions on a medicine bottle. But what if you didn’t have the basic reading and math skills required to navigate these daily tasks?

The staggering truth is that 66% of adults in Cleveland are functionally illiterate, and you can help them improve their lives by volunteering with Seeds of Literacy as an adult literacy tutor. As the only adult education program in Cuyahoga County that registers new students every week, we always have a need for new and enthusiastic tutors.

The donation of your time, skills, and patience as a tutor can make the crucial difference to an adult learner right in our community. Tutors work one-to-one with students to improve reading, writing, and math skills, offer encouragement and support, and help students develop positive attitudes towards learning.

To register, contact Alexandria Marshall at or 216.661.7950.
