Short of Tutors
WPL has had to close registration for new ABE tutoring students due to a large number of adult learners already waiting for tutors. There are over a dozen opportunities right now for one-on-one matches and a few opportunities to work with small groups.
If you have been away from tutoring for a while and would like to get involved again or if you’re already tutoring but would be open to taking on another match, please contact Josh at 847-775-2549 or janderson [at] waukeganpl [dot] info. Thanks in advance for your generosity with your time and talents!
On the Road to Literacy Conference
If you are a tutor, you are a keeper of dreams. That was one of the messages from this year’s “On the Road to Literacy” keynote speaker, Dr. Alfred Tatum, Dean of UIC’s College of Education. Tutors, thank you for all the dreams you keep alive!
17 total adult learners, teachers, tutors and staff joined together for fellowship and learning at the University of Illinois in Chicago on Saturday, April 18th. The festivities included a visit and remarks from Governor Rauner. It was great to have him there to recognize of the efforts of our adult learners and the service of our volunteer tutors. Click here for more about the event from Literacy Volunteers of Illinois.
Special thanks to the Literacy Volunteers of Lake County who sponsored the cost for all of the adult learners to attend the event. We hope you’ll be able to attend next year’s event. It’s always on a Saturday in April.
