Literacy Volunteers of Waldo County moves to Belfast Adult Ed

Mar 05, 2014

Literacy Volunteers of Waldo County, formerly affiliated with Broadreach Family and Community Services, is now a program within Belfast Adult Education.

Darrell Gilman, director of BAE, said “Literacy Volunteers is a great addition to our roster of programs and it fits perfectly with our overall goal to serve adults in the community”.

Colette Jadis, who has been named LVWC Coordinator, added “We are trying to get the word out that our location has changed, our services have expanded, we have trained tutors ready to be matched, and there are many opportunities to volunteer with tutoring and/or developing the organization.”

Literacy Volunteers provides free, confidential services to adults (ages 18 and older) who would like to improve their reading, writing, language, math, and/or computer skills. Trained volunteers work with adults on a one-to-one basis in a private setting close to their home, and learning sessions are scheduled around work and other obligations. This system allows the specific needs of each learner to be addressed in an efficient, convenient and stress-free manner. Assistance is available for native speakers as well as new English learners.

If you know someone who needs help with literacy skills or who would who would like to volunteer in any capacity, please contact Colette Jadis at 338-3197 or cjadis@rsu20.org.
