Alexandria Literacy Project offers volunteer orientation

The Alexandria Literacy Project (ALP) is sponsoring a volunteer orientation session for new or prospective volunteers on Tuesday, January 31 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Adult Basic Education Center in Alexandria.

ALP tutors work with individual adult students on basic literacy skills (reading, math, writing, etc.), tutor students whose first language is not English and work in classrooms with adult learners.

During this volunteer orientation, participants will learn about the ALP's goals, services and volunteer opportunities.

Attendance at a volunteer orientation session is a prerequisite to attending the tutor-training workshop. The two-part tutor-training workshop will be held at the same location on Friday, February 24 from 6 to 9 p.m. and Saturday, February 25 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

The Adult Basic Education Center is located at 1204 Highway 27 West in Alexandria. For details or to register for the orientation, call Rollie at (320) 762-3312, extension 4283 or (320) 304-1232 by January 19.
