12 hours of “free” training to become a volunteer literacy tutor.

Each year, the Delaware County Literacy Council schedule 4-5 training sessions that provide instruction & guidance for  adult volunteer tutors. The Delaware County Literacy Council currently provide training for 2 separate programs: (1) Adult Basic Education or A.B.E. and (2) English as a Second Language or E.S.L.

The A.B.E. program focuses on the development of basic reading, writing & workplace skills for adult students who reside in Delaware county and have registered with DCLC. The E.S.L. program focuses on helping adult immigrants who reside in Delaware county improve their basic English skills (knowledge of another language is not required). The majority of the tutoring sessions are one-on-one match-ups at a mutually convenient location that is agreed to by the tutor and his/her student.
