There’s a way for everyone to get involved. Donate securely online, volunteer as a tutor, spread awareness by participating in one of our annual events, or even come work for us. You can make a real difference for our communities. They depend upon your support.
Our Literacy Volunteers tutors come from all walks of life. Tutors do not need to have a background in teaching, education, or literacy. We provide training workshops to cover the basic theories, techniques, exercises, and resources we have found to be the most successful for both our students and their tutors.
New Volunteer Opportunity!
Read Together: Free Tutoring for Children
This is a new program aimed at giving literacy development support to children who are struggling to learn to read and could benefit from working one-on-one with a caring, enthusiastic adult but whose families cannot afford hiring a private tutor. We are looking for volunteers who could be available to meet twice weekly for a year with a student, age 7 to 11, in the Bath/Brunswick area. Could this be you? Upcoming Tutor Training information is on the flyer below.
Other Volunteer Opportunities
There are many ways you can contribute to the work of Tri-County Literacy, even if you do not want to become a tutor. We often need assistance in the office with mailings, publicity, and technology implementation. We also need volunteers to help during fundraisers and other events. This can range from being an events coordinator to helping set up tables or distribute flyers. There is even the possibility of doing some volunteer work preparing grants, writing appeals letters, and building relationships with potential contributors in the community. By helping Tri-County Literacy, you can not only help people in your community, you can also gain valuable skills and add to your resume. Please contact the office for more information. We’d love to hear from you.
