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 Wednesday, February 19 at the KC Workforce Center; Thursday, February 20 at the Greenville Education Center; Monday, February 24 at the Salem Education Center; Tuesday, February 25 at the Nashville Education Center; Wednesday, February 26 at the Vandalia Campus; Thursday, February 27 at the Assembly of God Church in Carlyle; and Monday, March 3 at the KC Main Campus.
Session II will be held Saturday, March 8 at the Kaskaskia College Main Campus.
To register for the next training, please call “The Reading Link” at Kaskaskia College at 1-800-642-0859, ext. 3119 or 545-3119.
By working together, we can make a positive change in the lives of others and in the community!
