Literacy Partners classes for volunteer tutors
Literacy Partners of Kewaunee County, Inc., is holding training sessions for volunteer tutors to help teach adults reading, writing and speaking skills.
The training consists of an orientation session from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Oct. 10, followed by three classes from 6 to 9:30 p.m. Oct. 17 and 19 and Nov. 2. All sessions will take place at Algoma United Methodist Church, 804 Parker Ave. No previous teaching experience is required; the organization’s tutors come from all walks of life. Volunteers must be able to attend the orientation and all three classes.
The Literacy Partners mission, according to its website, is “to establish a framework to provide literacy education to county residents by promoting an awareness of literacy issues; determining literacy needs; networking with other counties; training and supporting tutors; reaching out to those who need the service; providing regular, long-term, one-on-one tutoring; identifying and securing resources to meet the above goals.”
It offers one-on-one tutoring for adults who wish to improve their literacy skills, helping to strengthen the community by giving the adults a better future, lowering unemployment and improving their family lives.
To register for training sessions or for more information, call Literacy Partners President Bob Garfinkel at 920-845-2516. For more on the organization, go to www.literacykewauneeco.org or the “Literacy Partners of Kewaunee County, Inc.” Facebook page.
