Putting the Pieces Together

Volunteer Literacy Tutor Conference

On March 19, 2016, Portland Literacy Council was pleased to co-sponsor the 2016 Volunteer Literacy Tutor Conference on the Reed College Campus.


This conference supports Volunteer Literacy Tutors by offering a forum to exchange ideas, develop new teaching strategies, and hone tutoring skills. Volunteer Literacy Tutors in the Portland Metropolitan area provide one-to-one and group tutoring sessions to adult learners.
