SERVICES OFFERED: Literacy Volunteers helps adults and families learn to read or speak English in a student-centered format through four program components:
One-to-One matches: Adults who have limited or no literacy skills are matched with tutors who create a personalized learning program based on the student's stated needs, interests and goals. Many students would like to read better in order to get a job, help their children with their schoolwork, or improve their literacy for health.
Workplace Tutoring Groups: Tutors go to hotels, restaurants, and other workplaces to teach small groups of employees English as a second language or Basic Literacy. Employers provide time off for employees to be tutored (typically three hours per week), and pay them for this time.
Neighborhood and Community Tutoring Groups: English tutors meet with extended families and/or friends living in close proximity either in a student's home or a community facility. Students can share childcare and attend at a convenient location. English as a Second Language. Small groups of students at the same proficiency level with common goals meet with a tutor in a community location.
Computer-Assisted Learning: LVSF and the Santa Fe Community College's Adult Basic Education program operate the ABE Computer Lab, which offers conversational English and reading practice, and computers are available for students' use.
Student Support is the process of matching a tutor to meet the schedules and location preferences of our students. In addition, students are supported by demonstrated level gains through educational
assessment procedures, the use of free books and materials for sessions, and recognition in our quarterly Illuminations newsletter and at our annual awards picnic.
AVAILABLE DAYS: Monday through Friday; 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
