Join us for an Online Orientation

Join the Literacy Program for a free 40 minute online orientation to learn more about becoming a tutor to a motivated adult learner. No teaching or foreign language skills are necessary, just a desire to be of service. We provide training and match you with the right student. Orientations will be held via Zoom.  RSVP & we will follow up with further instructions.
