Tutors can volunteer to provide immediate literacy support to Learners during drop-in hours at our Center from 3-7 pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. This is available to provide help to learners as needed without an appointment.
Our On-to-One Tutoring program is a way for learners to receive personalized education for their individual needs and goals. Learners and tutors are matched and meet as their schedule permits at TLC or at other community locations.
Volunteer tutors can teach classes at TLC to groups of learners. These classes are weekly and cover a variety of topics including reading, writing, speaking, pronunciation, pre-GED topics, ESL, and citizenship.
TLC volunteer tutors teach classes at several locations in the community, including the Family Resource Center, Kinsey Elementary School, and Killip Elementary School.
Our newest program, Raising Readers is a program for 1st grade FUSD students who need extra literacy support. Volunteers work individually with students with a highly structured curriculum. Currently, we are working with students at Thomas, Sechrist, and Kinsey. Volunteers must complete the necessary training and an FUSD background check.
Partnership for Literacy Rehabilitation (PLR):
Tutors offer classes once a week to inmates in the Coconino County Jail. In the jail, volunteer instructors focus on helping learners develop employment literacy skills and provide programming on literature and the arts.
This program requires that tutors undergo training with the jail in addition to standard volunteer tutor training TLC. For more information about what is involved in becoming a PLR tutor, please click the link below.
