Be a Literacy Tutor!

Have you ever wanted to change a stranger's life? Wanted to share your love of reading, but weren't sure how? The Burbank Public Library Literacy Program teaches children and adults how to read, and we need your help! Our next Volunteer Tutor Training will be held May 12, 14, and 21.



ORIENTATION:
Thursday, May 12, 6:00-8:00 p.m.
Want to learn more about our program before you commit? Join us Thursday evening for an overview of the program and a tour of our offices.

CURRICULUM TRAINING
Saturday, May 14, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Literacy specialists will present an all-day workshop on how to teach reading. Using our Reading Horizons curriculum, you will learn how to break down multi-syllabic words and why "cat" starts with the letter c, not k.

PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE
Saturday, May 21, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Take turns being a tutor and a student, with lots of hands-on practice. Explore our supplemental materials, and learn about our tutor-learner matching process.

Participants must attend all three sessions and pass a fingerprint check before they can begin volunteering as tutors.


Please call (818) 238-5577 for more information and to register for the workshop.
