Project Read volunteer tutors needed

Project Read-Menlo Park is seeking volunteers to tutor adults in literacy, and is offering tutor-training sessions beginning Tuesday, Feb. 8.

Training sessions are from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Feb. 8; 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 12; and 6 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 22. The final session is for tutors who have started meeting with their students, giving them a chance to compare notes and seek advice on specific situations they may have encountered.

Those interested in being a tutor but who can't attend the next scheduled sessions can receive videotaped or DVD training and resource material through the Project Read office at the Menlo Park Library.

Tutoring takes place at the Menlo Park and Belle Haven branch libraries, the Menlo Park Senior Center, the Burgess Recreation Center, or at a location mutually agreeable to the tutor and learner.

Visit projectreadmenlopark.org or call 330-2525 for more information.
