It has been tremendously rewarding serving as a Prairie State College volunteer literacy
tutor since 2014. I feel that I have been handed a wonderful gift working with adults
of all ages who want to achieve economic advancement and personal growth. The process
to volunteer is simple. Literacy staff prescreens and assesses each individual seeking
tutorial services. I then meet with the learner to schedule a time to meet and agree
on a game plan. PSC provides a safe, comfortable environment and instructional materials.
Computers and tutor training are readily available. This is a great opportunity for
anyone who wants to change the world - one person at a time!
