Literacy Volunteers of America, Essex & Passaic Counties, a non-profit organization dedicated to fighting illiteracy, needs your help.
We have a long list of people who want to improve their lives by doing things we sometimes take for granted: Explaining an ailment to a family doctor, writing a note to a child's teacher when a son or daughter is absent from school, reading street signs or understanding directions needed for public transportation.
But we need tutors. As a volunteer tutor, you can help people achieve a more rewarding life through small group weekly instruction in reading, writing, and speaking English. Register for our Tutor-Training Workshop at the Montclair Public Library which meets from 12:15-4:45 pm on Saturdays, Jan. 11, 18, Feb. 1, 8, 2014. Attendance at all sessions is required. It costs only your time. For more information, please e-mail Russell at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 973-566-6200 ext. 217. We can't do it without you. Please join our campaign to battle illiteracy.
