Literacy Volunteers seeks tutors

Literacy Volunteers of Ontario County is now recruiting people to be trained as literacy volunteers.

The next Tutor Training Workshop, which offers volunteers the opportunity to help adults learn to read and write or learn how to speak English, will begin with an orientation session from 6 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 11 at the FLCC Geneva Campus Center (the former Geneva Middle School) at 63 Pulteney St.

Workshop sessions will be during the same times on Tuesdays and Thursdays Sept. 13 through Oct. 9.

In order to become a tutor, volunteers must be at least 18 years of age, have an interest in helping adult students to learn, be a high school graduate (or hold a GED), be able to attend the entire training program, complete homework assignments and be willing to devote at least two hours per week to working with an adult student. Tutors do NOT need a teaching background or any knowledge of a foreign language.
