Volunteer Opportunity Essential Duties
Volunteer Tutors Needed Just two hours a week is all the time you need to help other adults learn to read, write or speak English. The Plymouth-Canton Community Literacy Council is in need of tutor volunteers and has New Tutor Training and Orientation classes starting in October. Literacy volunteers receive comprehensive training before tutoring in a setting of their choice. Some tutors work one-on-one with a student, while others prefer to volunteer in a small conversation group or as a teacher’s assistant in an adult classroom. No prior experience is necessary. For more information, contact the Community Literacy Council at 734-589-0011.
