Can you help?

The Whatcom Literacy Council will be hosting their prospective volunteer tutor orientation for those interested in helping an adult learn to read and write or use English as a second language. Tutors must be 18-years-old and have graduated from high school. No previous teaching or foreign language skills needed. Training is provided and tutoring is done in your own community.

Orientation is Tuesday, October 5 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., Whatcom Community College, Cascade 101. Over 60 people are waiting for your help.

It is estimated that one in five adults in the United States is functionally illiterate. This means that 30,000 adults in Whatcom County may need literacy services. For more information, call 647-3264 or visit www.whatcomliteracy.org.
