Gateway Community Action Partnership’s Literacy Services Department will conduct a Literacy Volunteers tutor training session in Vineland beginning March 22. Pre-registration is required. Trained tutors will work one-on-one with adult learners who need help reading, writing, or speaking English.
The training course will be held five consecutive Wednesday evenings from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at PathStone Corporation, 76 W. Landis Ave., Vineland. Class dates are March 22 and 29 and April 5, 12 and 19, with a snow date of April 26.
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 21 years and is accredited by Literacy New Jersey and ProLiteracy. Trained tutors generally meet one to two hours per week with learners.
