If you can read this sentence, then you can help! Why not start off 2018 with an exciting, new volunteer opportunity? The Winnebago County Literacy Council (WCLC) is seeking volunteer tutors to help with a growing list of adult and adolescent learners who want to improve their literacy skills. We currently have many learners who are eager to begin receiving English language support. The tutoring time commitment is a minimum of one hour, once a week.
If you would like to help, there are five upcoming volunteer orientation times through the winter/spring to learn more about how you can help our learners. Below are the following days and times for our “Volunteer Foundations” courses :
- Tuesday, January 9th, 5:00 — 7:00 PM
- Friday, February 16th, 10:00 AM — 12:00 PM
- Tuesday, March 13th, 5:00 — 7:00 PM
- Friday, April 13th, 10:00 AM — 12:00 PM
- Tuesday, May 8th, 5:00 — 7:00 PM
“Foundations” will include information about the WCLC, as well as training to understand the different types of learners, tutoring basics, and cultural considerations. These points of discussion prepare tutors to be learner-centered and matched with a learner quickly. “Foundations” takes place on the third floor of the Oshkosh Public Library, 106 Washington Avenue, Oshkosh, WI 54901. To register, call 920.236.5219 ext. 4802, or contact Marisa Wegener at email@example.com. We look forward to hearing from you!
