Literacy Volunteers of East Bay seeking volunteers

Literacy Volunteers of East Bay is seeking volunteers who would like to make a difference in the life of an adult learner.

Literacy Volunteers provides free one-on-one tutoring or small group instruction to area adults, helping them with reading, writing, math and/or English speaking skills. They also provide support for students who are enrolled in GED programs.

Volunteer tutors attend an eight-hour interactive training session to learn tutoring techniques and best practices for working with adult learners. Upon completion of the training, tutors are matched with a student. Together they determine a mutually convenient time and place to meet for two hours per week. Coordinators provide ongoing help to both students and tutors.

For more information on becoming a tutor, call training coordinator Eleanor Fuller at (401) 247-2177 or visit
