CARTERVILLE — John A. Logan College’s literacy program is once again recruiting volunteers to provide tutoring services to adult learners. Those who are interested in becoming volunteer tutors are required to attend 15 hours of training. The next training sessions will be conducted Sept. 14 and 21 in room H128 at Logan.

Prospective tutors must attend both sessions. Training consists of reading and writing techniques, lesson planning, goal development and resources to use with learners, who receive services free of charge. Prior to training, an orientation session must be arranged with the assistant literacy coordinator at the prospective volunteer’s convenience.

Tutors need to be available two to three hours per week for at least six months. Teaching experience is not required.

Some adult learners have dropped out of high school and are working toward a GED. Others want to improve their skills to be more effective as parents, workers and citizens. Some need to learn how to read, while others have been laid off from jobs or need to learn the English language.

Tutors are needed in communities throughout JALC district — not just in Carterville.

For more information or to sign up for the training sessions, call Logan at 618-985-3741, ext. 8442.
