Project READ at Parkland College Adult Education trains volunteer tutors to help improve the basic literacy skills of adults in reading, English as another language, or basic math.
Project Read is made possible by volunteers who give their time to improve the quality of life for hundreds of people in our community. Tutors and learners meet regularly at the Champaign Public Library, The Urbana Free Library, Parkland College, Wesley Church/Food Pantry, Champaign Unit 4 Schools, ISCU (Immigrant Services of Champaign-Urbana), Rantoul Public Library, and many other public places in our community and throughout our region. Tutors might be homemakers, retirees from any profession, college students, working professionals, or former adult learners. Learners are older teens and adults age 17 to 80+, who want to improve their lives and the lives of their families.
This workshop will focus on continuing education efforts on behalf of Project Read tutors. Registrations recommended. Sign up with Project READ »
