Programs statewide need family literacy volunteers. You can make a difference, even if you only have an hour a week to spare. Here are some of the ways that family literacy volunteers help to break the cycle of low literacy:
- Tutor adults to learn how to read or help them prepare for their GED.
- Tutor children in reading or schoolwork.
- Work with parents in their own tutoring skills, so that they can help their children learn.
- Help facilitate parent support groups, to expand participants' parenting skills.
- Assist programs with coordination activities.
- Assist programs with management, such as serving on a Board of Directors.
