Volunteers Needed as Adult Literacy Tutors

Waubonsee Community College’s Adult Literacy Project is seeking volunteers to tutor adult students in reading, writing and speaking English. All training and materials are free.

An online volunteer tutor training program will be available throughout the month of July. The flexible, individually-paced curriculum includes readings and responses, and takes approximately eight to 10 hours to complete.

Participants will also attend an in-person training session at the college’s Aurora Campus, 18 S. River St. A session is scheduled for Saturday, July 18, from 9 to 11:30 a.m., although alternative dates will be available.

Prospective tutors must complete all training before working with adult learners individually or in a classroom environment.

Tutor applications are available online at or by calling (630) 801-7900, ext. 4221.
