LearningQuest – Stanislaus Literacy Centers is seeking volunteers to meet the needs of 32 adults who have requested help with reading and need a literacy tutor.
For people interested in helping, the next tutor orientation and training will be June 5 and June 7. Both are offered at LearningQuest, 1032 11th St., Modesto.
The orientation is June 5 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. The training is June 7 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. There is a $10 cost for training materials, but the fee can be waived if requested.
Tutors are asked to meet for a minimum of 90 minutes, twice a week, in a public location. The times and days depend upon the schedule of the volunteer, who will be matched with a student with similar availability.
Here are a few of the people waiting for a tutor:
