I-READ program seeks volunteer tutors

IV Leader Staff

The I-READ Adult Literacy Program at Illinois Valley Community College will conduct free training sessions for new volunteer tutors in February.

Volunteers must have a desire to work with adult learners and be willing to tutor two-three hours each week, but volunteers do not need to have teaching experience. Fifteen hours of training are required for all tutors.

The training sessions will be 8:30-11:30 a.m. and 12:30-3:30 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 2, and Saturday, Feb. 9, in Room E-324.

To register, contact Angela Dunlap, I-READ program manager, at 815-224-0372 or Chris Warren, I-READ literacy specialist, at 815-224-0345.
