This 2 - hour orientation is a prerequisite for Literacy 201 Tutor Training.

Common Heart Literacy Volunteers is made up of community members like you.  We are volunteers engaged in a small revolution of kindness in our community. Literacy impacts every part of a person’s life. Every day we read street signs or a note from our child’s teacher without thinking about it.  But so many of our neighbors struggle with these basic tasks.  To them, reading is a life line.

Would you like to be involved as a volunteer? The needs for Literacy Volunteers includes tutors, computer lab helpers, office administration and so much more.  You may ask, "Do I have what it takes to be a tutor?"  If you can read, you can teach someone to read. Take a look at our Tutor Job Description for more information.
