Literacy tutor training Oct. 28

ALBANY, N.Y. (Oct. 10, 2017) – There are still spots available in a free Oct. 28 training for people who want to volunteer as elementary school reading tutors in the City School District of Albany.

   

The training will be held from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 28 at Harriet Gibbons Student Services Center, 75 Watervliet Avenue. Lunch and a beverage will be provided.

     

Conducting the training will be the Oasis Literacy Tutoring Program, which pairs adult tutors with students in kindergarten-grade 4. Volunteer tutors will meet with students once a week in one-to-one sessions, and they will be provided with materials and support.

      

To register or learn more about the Oasis program and other volunteer opportunities in the district, contact Volunteer Coordinator Fiona Thompson at 475-6360 or fthompson@albany.k12.ny.us.

  

Once trained, volunteers will be invited to join experienced tutor teams at elementary schools throughout the district.

       

The mission of the City School District of Albany is to educate and prepare all students for college and career, citizenship and life, in partnership with our diverse community. The district serves nearly 9,700 students in 18 elementary, middle and high schools. In addition to neighborhood schools, the district includes several magnet schools and programs, as well as other innovative academic opportunities for students, including four themed academies at Albany High School.
