OG Readers Volunteer Tutor Training - Central

3:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Central Library
Children's Area - Island Room

Event Details

Teens and adults are invited to become OG Readers Volunteer Tutors as part of our new reading intervention program for kids! This 8 hour training is based on the Orton-Gillingham Approach of teaching kids who are struggling readers. These techniques employ multisensory learning, phonics based instruction, and other tools to demystify the process of reading. 

Once training is complete, volunteers will work one-on-one with students in 1st - 4th grades. Volunteers and their learners will meet at least once a week at the library after school, in the evenings, or on the weekends. You will be matched with a student that works with your schedule. The Library will provide all materials and training, as well as offer ongoing support. 

Volunteers should:

  • Enjoy working with young people and exhibit patience
  • Be 16 years or older, and if over 18, complete a background check
  • Commit to the training sessions and at least one hour of tutoring per week for 6 months
  • Be excited to share a passion for reading!
