Gateway Community Action Partnership’s Literacy Services Department will conduct two Literacy Volunteers tutor training sessions beginning March 23. Pre-registration is required. Trained tutors will work one-on-one with adult learners who need help reading, writing, or speaking English.
A Salem class will be held five consecutive Wednesday afternoons from 1 to 4 p.m. at St. John’s Episcopal Church, 76 Market St, Salem.
A Woodstown class will be held five consecutive Wednesday evenings from 6 to 9 p.m. at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, 37 E. Grant St., Woodstown.
Class dates are March 23 and 30, and April 6, 13, and 20 with a snow date of April 27.
Residents of Cumberland and Salem counties can register for the 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 20 years and is accredited by Literacy New Jersey and ProLiteracy. Trained tutors generally meet one to two hours per week with learners.
