Literacy Tutor – Volunteer tutors are needed to help refugees, immigrants and native speakers acquire basic English literacy skills. Orientation and training provided. Plan now to attend our September 17 orientation.

English Literacy Tutor: Become a literacy tutor. Help refugees, immigrants, or homegrown Americans improve their English language skills. Lincoln Literacy provides training, books and materials, and matches you with a student.

We are in need of several people to lead conversation groups. They could do it in pairs, trade off weeks, or take it on singly, but we'd need them to commit for at least the semester. Groups meet weekly for 1.0 or 1.5 hours at a time.

We offer some basic training for this, taking approx. 1.5 hours, and we have materials that can help a conversation group leader find topics and activities. Contact: Donna Stadig, Conversaton Group Coordinator, (402) 476-7323, dstadig@@lincolnliteracy.org, www.lincolnliteracy.org
