Volunteer Opportunity:


Adult learners at the Cape Fear Literacy Council meet one-on-one with tutors throughout the year, focusing on skills necessary for them to achieve their personal, educational, or employment goals. Small group sessions and/or classes are also available. During the Covid-19 pandemic, tutoring is taking place both remotely and on our campus, by appointment.

In order to become a tutor for the Adult Literacy or English as a Second Language program, volunteers must:

Be 18 or older and a high school graduate. No teaching experience or foreign language proficiency is required.
Complete a 9-hour tutor training workshop for Adult Literacy or English as a Second Language to become Pro-Literacy Certified.
Have time to teach! We ask one-on-one tutors to commit to teaching 3 hours/week plus prep for at least six months. Class instructors commit to 1.5-3 hours/week for eight-week sessions.
