MCC seeks adult literacy volunteers

CRYSTAL LAKE – The Adult Volunteer Literacy program at McHenry County College is offering free training to anyone interested in becoming a literacy volunteer.

Those interested in finding out more may come to any Volunteer Literacy Tutor Orientation session scheduled this fall.

Sessions are available:

• 7:15 to 9:15 p.m. Wednesday in Room A370 of the college, 8900 Route 14, Crystal Lake.

• 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. Oct. 5 in Room A372.

• 7:15 to 9:15 p.m. Oct. 30 in Room A370.

• 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. Nov. 2 in Room A372.

Volunteers teach reading, math or English as a second language to adult education students at McHenry County College or at local libraries.   

A literacy volunteer tutor does not have to speak a second language. The free basic training provides the information and skills needed to work with literacy students. Flexible work schedules are provided to meet people’s busy calendars, including those who are retired or working full time.

This project was made possible in part by a grant awarded by the Illinois State Library, a Division of the Office of Secretary of State, using state funds designated for literacy.

For information, call Marie Day at 815-455-8542.
