  • evaluate speaking, reading, and writing skills
  • match each student with a tutor
  • identify short and long term goals
  • support students to make the experience a positive one


  • provide training workshops
  • match each tutor with a student or small group
  • share materials, ideas, and lesson plans

If you’d like to become a literacy volunteer, please visit the website or call the office.
