Volunteers Needed For Kaskaskia College Reading Link Program

Kaskaskia College’s “The Reading Link” is in need of volunteer tutors.  “The Reading Link” is holding formal training free of charge for volunteers who are interested in sharing their abilities to assist others in improving their skills. Volunteers assist adult learners who are 17 years of age or older, in reading, writing, basic math, and learning Basic English Skills.
 
Anyone can volunteer who has a genuine concern for others, an ability to learn and an ability to read well.  Tutoring can be part of a challenging and rewarding experience. Our volunteers tutor learners for a minimum of two hours per week.
 
After volunteers finish the training, tutors meet on a regular basis with an individual from their own community in a public place such as a church, school, public library, or other area that is convenient to the tutor and to the learner.
 
Free Volunteer Tutor Training dates include Friday, October 11 at the Trenton Education Center from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.; Monday, October 14     at the Greenville Education Center from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. or 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.; Tuesday, October 15 at the Nashville Education Center from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. or 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.; Wednesday, October 16 at the Kaskaskia College Main Campus from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. or 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.; Friday, October 18 at the Vandalia Campus from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. or 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.; Monday, October 21 at the Salem Education Center from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. or 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.; and Wednesday, October 23 at the KC Workforce Center from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. or 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
