Be a Power Up! Volunteer!

Have some free time on your hands and want to help integrate new literacy students to the program? We offer a 2 hour orientation session to incoming students in which we discuss how the program works, what the expectations are of both students and their prospective tutors, and goal setting strategies in detail. This orientation session is called Power Up! and next year we plan to offer one session a month for ESL students, and one for Basic Literacy students: now we just need the volunteers to lead and assist these sessions!
