Press contact: Kyla Kruse

SPRINGFIELD — Lincoln Land Community College is hosting information meetings for interested individuals to learn about becoming a volunteer tutor with the college’s adult education program at its Springfield location. Meetings will be held March 28, 10 a.m.-noon in the Bicentennial Room at Lincoln Library, 326 S. 7th St., and April 9, 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. in the conference room at Chatham Library, 600 E Spruce St.

The sessions will provide details on the program, training and requirements. Volunteers are needed to help adults improve their English, reading, writing and math skills.

Volunteers must be at least 18 years old with reading and/or math abilities, but they do not need to have a teaching degree. ñ will provide all the training and materials the tutors need, including the books tutors will use with the students and a tutoring handbook.

The time commitment can be a minimum of one hour a week (although some volunteer for two or three hours per week), and times are flexible based on each tutor’s availability. Tutors primarily work with students Monday through Friday but can also volunteer for the weekend.

The volunteer tutoring program is made possible through a grant awarded by the Illinois State Library, a division of the office of the Illinois Secretary of State, using funds designated for literacy.
