Volunteer Orientation – Dutchess County
September 12, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Do you like the idea of helping someone learn to read and write? Find out what volunteering for Literacy Connections is all about! We’ll give you an overview of our history, the issue of illiteracy, and points to remember when working with adults who cannot read. Our most pressing current volunteer needs are for tutors (to work one-on-one with basic readers or English language learners) and small-group teachers (for English language learners). You don’t have to be a teacher already to volunteer – we will provide training. And there are other ways to help us promote literacy if teaching isn’t your thing. Please join us in helping people to read, write, and reach their potential! Orientation is required for anyone wanting to work with students.
Most of our Dutchess County orientations take place at our main office in Poughkeepsie, but we recognize that Poughkeepsie is far to travel for some folks. We are open to holding this meeting in the eastern part of the county if there is interest. Email Marian at 845-452-8670 to register and to state a location preference.
