YMCA Training Volunteer Reading Tutors

Could you spend 3 hours each week helping an ADULT improve reading skills? 

Training sessions: Tues, Wed, Thurs and Fri January 27, 28, 29, 30 from 12:30-3:00pm.

We will provide you with 10 hours of training, materials, and on-going support you as you meet twice each week with a learner. We assess all learners and match you with someone whose schedule and logistical preferences match yours. After you are matched you can meet at a YMCA, public library, or any other public location.

Our learners vary from 2nd grade – 9th grade reading levels. Many are working on specific goals like filling out job applications, working for a promotion at work, or learning to help children or grandchildren with homework. Most of our learners are in their 40s and 50s.

Please contact Julie Weber at 336.727.9850 or j.weber@ymcanwnc.org or click here to fill out our tutor interest form.
