Gateway Community Action Partnership’s Literacy Services Department will conduct a Literacy Volunteers tutor training session in Carneys Point beginning August 2. 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 Monday and Wednesday mornings from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Salem Community College, 460 Hollywood Ave., Carneys Point New Jersey. Class dates are August 2, 7, 9, 14 and 16.
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.
