2016 Tutor Training Dates

Read Muskegon relies on volunteers to provide the majority of our services.   From 1-1 tutoring, to providing support in one of our classes, to helping at a family literacy event, there are a variety of ways you can make a difference.  You don’t need to be a teacher to volunteer, just a desire to help someone change their life through the gift of improved literacy.  We provide extensive training and ongoing support to all of our volunteers.

 

For more information, contact Sarah Klassen at 231-766-5040.

 

2016 Training Dates:
