URGENT! Tutors Needed ASAP For Adult Literacy League
(August 30, 2013 — Orlando, Fla.) The Adult Literacy League has seen its waiting list grow to 107 residents seeking help with the English language this summer and basic learning, triggering an immediate call for volunteers to help tutor adults and children. The Adult Literacy League currently serves 1,400 students with 343 active tutors.
Tutors can schedule a one-day training as early as Saturday, September 7. With International Literacy Day on September 8th, this is the perfect time to get involved with the Adult Literacy League.
According to Gina Berko-Solomon, MBA, Director of Adult Education at the Adult Literacy League, tutors are needed to volunteer at the ALL office on Michigan Street in Orlando, in Seminole County, and in south Orlando, including the airport area, South Orange Blossom Trail-Florida Mall area, and Hunters Creek. There is a particular need in Seminole County.
“This is a great way to give back to the community,” says Executive Director Joyce Whidden. “We are very respectful of a tutor’s time, but cannot do what we do without these wonderful volunteers.”
The Adult Literacy League provides adult literacy services in Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties through one-to-one tutoring and classes. The League also serves the early literacy needs of more than 600 low-income, pre-school children through its Family Literacy Program called, Read to Me!
