There are more than 400 adult literacy programs throughout Minnesota, most of which rely on the time and talents of volunteer tutors to keep costs low.
We offer comprehensive training for new and current literacy volunteers. Our two pre-service trainings prepare volunteers for English language classes or Reading, Writing and GED classes. In-service and technology workshops provide continuing education in specialized teaching topics.
- Literacy council trainers led 164 pre-service, in-service and technology trainings or workshops in program year 2010.
- More than 2,500 literacy tutors were trained in 2010.
