To continue the journey to becoming a fully trained tutor, you can sign up to come back at a later date for our 10-hr Tutor Training (see 2014 training dates). Completion of Literacy Council 101 and Tutor Training are required to be matched with a student.
Participants are trained on the Laubach Method (our foundational curriculum), adult learning theory, small group instruction, using authentic materials, and program-specific procedures.
Note to churches and other organizations: As training space allows, we continue to welcome volunteers seeking certification for your programs or other purposes and request a $50 donation per participant.
