Our goal at the Minnesota Literacy Council is to support you in all stages of your tutoring experience. We will guide you through the following steps to becoming a successful volunteer:
- To Begin
Attend a New Volunteer Information Session to learn more about our opportunities and decide if volunteering with literacy is a good fit for you. Or, if you already feel you have enough information and would like to jump in and get started, attend a children's tutor training.
- Find a Location
Choose a volunteer literacy program that fits your interests, skills, location and scheduling needs.
- Site Orientation
Once you've contacted a program, meet on-site with the volunteer coordinator to become familiar with the program. The orientation may include observing a class, meeting staff and volunteers, and learning about their curricula.
- Begin Volunteering
We provide useful resources to help you in your work, including access to our library, weekly tutor tips and a monthly tutor e-newsletter.
- Continue Learning
Take advantage of the free, frequent Tutor In-Service Workshops on a variety of topics!
