    About Us

    We train volunteers to tutor adults in basic literacy or English as a second language. Individuals interested in becoming a volunteer literacy tutor complete 12 hours of tutor training before they are matched with an adult learner. Once you are matched with a learner, you will be expected to meet at a mutually convenient time and public place, such as a library, for a minimum of four hours per month. We ask that tutors commit to a minimum of one year of service.
    There is a tremendous need, the typical adult learner waits nearly one year before they are matched with a tutor. Tutoring literally changes lives. If you are interested in learning more about becoming a tutor, please visit our website at www.elginliteracy.org or email info@elginliteracy.org.
    Other volunteer opportunities at The Literacy Connection include volunteering in our office, at fundraisers, or serving on our Board of Directors. Contact us at 847-742-6565 or email info@elginliteracy.org to learn more.
