LITERACY VOLUNTEERS OF BANGOR SEEKING VOLUNTEERS TO TUTOR READING TO ADULTS

Bangor -

BANGOR, Maine — Demand for adult literacy services in the Bangor and Old Town areas is prompting Literacy Volunteers of Bangor (LV-Bangor) to step up efforts to recruit and train volunteer tutors. Volunteers who are patient and understanding are encouraged to learn how they can make an incredible difference by helping to improve another‚Äôs reading skills.

LV-Bangor matches adult students with tutors. Tutoring is done at a time and place that is convenient to both student and tutor. Learners typically identify their goal, whether it is to fill out an application, study for a high school diploma or simply make incremental improvement to overall literacy.

Two more training sessions will be offered again in 2012. Jan. 11 to Feb. 15, 9 a.m. to noon; and March 28 to May 9, 6-9 p.m.

The course fee is $35. Scholarships are available. Register by called Literacy Volunteers of Bangor at 947-8451 or sending an e-mail of interest to suzannefolsom@lvbangor.org. For more information on other certifications and class sessions visit www.lvbangor.org.
