Literacy Volunteers Announces Hybrid Tutor Training Workshop for Albany County and Rensselaer County



Do you have two hours a week? Have you thought about volunteering as a tutor? We can train you. Literacy Volunteers of Rensselaer County will begin a Tutor Training Workshop in March. The training will include two in-person sessions, three sessions remote by Zoom, and two online modules: Reading Basics 2.0 and Language Basics 2.0 from Literacy New York’s self-paced I2O online training platform. Trainees will be asked to complete the two online modules before March 24. 

Literacy Volunteers of Rensselaer County (LVORC) welcomes all kinds of volunteers, from tutors to administrative helpers and event planners. As a volunteer you can develop new skills, make friends, and see how your efforts make a difference in Rensselaer County and Albany County. 

To find out more about tutoring and other ways to help, join us for a Volunteer Opportunities Information Session on Thursday, March 3 from 6:00-7:00 p.m. via Zoom. Contact [email protected] or call 518 244-4650 to register.
