Literacy Education Volunteer Program
The Literacy Education Department offers volunteer opportunities in the classroom
instructional program and the one-on-one literacy tutoring program.
Classroom volunteers work in Adult Basic Education (ABE) or in English as a Second Language (ESL) classes which are held at locations throughout Harford County.
Classes meet two evenings or mornings a week for 2 1/2 hours per session.

week. No specialized training is
necessary, but new volunteers are strongly encouraged to attend an orientation
session which will be held prior to the start of the semester.
One-on-one tutors are required to attend a ten-hour training workshop to become
certified to tutor an adult beginning reader in reading and writing skills.

tutor and student. Tutors and
students usually meet once or twice a week for 1 to 2 hours per session.
