Gateway Community Action Partnership’s Literacy Services Department’s Adult Literacy will conduct two tutor training sessions beginning in September. Pre-registration is required. Trained tutors will work one-on-one with adult learners who need help reading, writing, or speaking English.
The Bridgeton class begins September 22 and will be held Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 9 a.m. to noon at Gateway’s administrative offices, 110 Cohansey St., Bridgeton. Class dates are September 22, 24, 29, October 1 and 6.
The Vineland class begins October 7 and runs for five consecutive Wednesday evenings from 6 to 9 p.m. at PathStone Corporation, 76 W. Landis Ave., Suite C, Vineland.
Residents of Cumberland and Salem counties can register for either training.
The training is free and open to the public, but tutor trainees must attend at least four of the five sessions to graduate and become certified to tutor. Tutors will be trained in ESL and basic literacy.
Gateway has provided literacy services in Cumberland and Salem counties for the past 19 years and is accredited by Literacy Volunteers of New Jersey and ProLiteracy. Trained tutors generally meet one to two hours per week with learners.
For additional information, or to sign up this or future training sessions, call Laura Stanton at 856-497-6645.
