Due to the need for safety precautions during the pandemic, Literacy Volunteers of the Tarrytowns is not able to offer in-person tutor training classes. We do offer online training at your own convenience.
Interested in becoming a Literacy Volunteer? Online training is a flexible option.
Enroll in our 12 hour online training program for $25.00, complete the training and attend an orientation session at the library. After the orientation, you will be matched with a learner from our waiting list. You will need to be flexible and safe when tutoring. We recommend outdoor meetings with masks and social distancing or online meetings with applications like Zoom, Skype, or FaceTime. Eventually we will be able to tutor in our well-equipped tutoring center at the Warner Library. The time commitment is two hours a week for one year (vacations allowed).
Just fill out our Volunteer Application and indicate that you are interested in our online training. Application forms are also available in the Reference Room at the library, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
