Photos and Story by James Hill
PORTLAND, Ore. The Volunteer Literacy Tutoring Program at Portland Community College is searching for a few good volunteer tutors. The program needs volunteers to help adult immigrants and refugees learn English and to assist both native and non-native English speakers in improving their basic literacy skills. Also, volunteers will prepare them for the GED or High School Equivalency exam. Training for tutoring at PCC will take place from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Saturdays, June 19 and 26 at the Central Portland Workforce Training Center near OMSI. To register for the training or learn more about this volunteer opportunity, call 503-244-6111, extension 3700. For more information, call the literacy line 1-800-322-8715.
