Upcoming Tutor Training and Orientation

Literacy Volunteers’ next orientation and tutor training will be done virtually on Zoom.  If you’re interested in learning more about being a tutor, and want more details about the upcoming training sessions please come to one of the orientations on either Wednesday, April 28 at 7:00 PM or Thursday, April 29 at 1:00 PM. 

Training sessions will be May 17, 20, 24, 27, June 3 and 7 from 1:00 – 3:00 PM, with all sessions required.  Because all tutoring is currently being done remotely, the training will teach skills needed to teach English online as well as in person.  For information call 413-499-9487 or email LVBC@bcn.net
