Children in Richmond, Boothbay Harbor, Bath, and Brunswick are waiting for tutors. A three-day tutor training will be held starting September 13 for Midcoast Literacy’s Read Together tutoring program for children ages 6-14.
“We have a waiting list of students, so becoming a tutor this fall will really make a big difference in a child's life,” says Katie Clark, Read Together Program Director. “Children in Richmond, Boothbay Harbor, Bath, and Brunswick are waiting for tutors. Word is spreading about the success of our Read Together program.”
Tutors are needed for children ages 6-14 who are struggling to read at grade level and for children from asylum seeking families who are learning to speak, read, and write in English. Training for new volunteers will be held on September 13, 15, and 17, from 9:00-1:00pm each day at Midcoast Literacy's offices (9 Park Street; Bath, ME). Participants must attend all three days to complete the training.
Tutors for Read Together must be at least 18 years old; participate in the training for volunteer tutors; and be able to make a minimum one-year commitment. The September training will be held in-person and be limited to a maximum of 8 participants. All new Read Together tutoring sessions are taking place in-person at this time. Face masks are not required but may be worn by both participants at the request of either the tutor or the family.
