If you are interested in becoming a Gorge Literacy tutor, please make sure that you meet the qualifications and time commitments below:
- High school diploma or a GED
- 18 years or older
- Desire to share the gift of literacy
- Be non-judgmental, flexible, and patient
We recommend three hours per week (usually two 1½ hour sessions) to meet with a learner. Our staff will provide instructional materials and coordinate your initial interactions with your tutoring matches.
Please fill out our volunteer form to get started.
Prior to being matched with a learner, volunteers attend a 1/2 day training led by an experienced trainer. The training is comfortably paced, interactive and fun. Breakfast refreshments are provided.
Trainees learn and explore:
- Organization’s mission
- Adult Learning
- Tutor expectations
- General Learner profiles
- Potential Tutoring opportunities
You must complete the Volunteer Tutor Application before attending the new tutor training.
Our tutors come from a variety of backgrounds that provide a rich set of experiences to help our learners. Learn more about our tutors and their experiences by clicking on the links below.
