Huntington County Literacy Coalition still looking for volunteer tutors

The Huntington County Literacy Coalition is searching for volunteer tutors.

Tutor training will be held in North Manchester on Thursdays during October at the Learn More Center, located in the Town Life Center.

Dates are Oct. 1, 8, 15, and 29 and classes will run from 5:30 8 p.m. Participants must attend all four sessions. Attendees are encouraged to bring a brown bag dinner. Training is open to any adult interested in helping others with reading, math, obtaining a General Educational Development (GED) certificate or improving their skills in English as a Second Language (ESL).

Literacy training and materials are offered at no charge to anyone willing to make a commitment to be a Literacy Coalition tutor for one year. HCLC tutors usually spend just an hour a week in tutoring activity.

Tutors and students meet at several locations across Huntington County, including public libraries in Andrews, Huntington, Markle, Roanoke and Warren.
Students and tutors set their own schedules for tutoring sessions.
