Southeastern Community College Volunteer Literacy Program Seeks Reading Tutors

Southeastern Community College Volunteer Literacy Program is seeking new volunteer tutors. The program is designed to help students who do not know how to read, or who read at a sixth grade level or lower. Interested persons do not need any type of teacher certification. They just need to enjoy reading and helping people.

There will be two training sessions.  The first session will be on Friday, March 30, from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Burlington Public Library.  The second session will be on Saturday, May 5, from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the SCC Fort Madison Center, 1602 Avenue F.  People interested in volunteering may choose either session.

The SCC Adult Literacy Program serves non-reading adults of Southeast Iowa by providing free, confidential, one-on-one tutoring. This personalized and goal-oriented approach to reading has proven successful in meeting the special needs of adult learners.  These services are available to native and foreign-born adults.  The program is an affiliate of Pro-Literacy International.

For more information or to register, contact Paula Faulkner at 376-2286, or (319) 208-5306 by Friday, March 23 for the Burlington training session, and by Friday, April 27 for the Ft. Madison session.

Persons who cannot read or who wish to improve their reading skills, or persons who know someone who could benefit from this program are encouraged to contact Paula Faulkner at 376-2286 or (319) 208-5306.
