Literacy Outreach seeks volunteers

Literacy Outreach needs help teaching basic literacy skills to adults, including basic reading, writing and math to native English speakers and oral English skills to non-native speakers. Volunteers do not need to speak a foreign language or have prior teaching experience, just a desire to help, the ability to read and speak English, and three hours of time per week to work with an adult.

Literacy Outreach will provide interested volunteers with more information regarding the requirements and rewards at a volunteer informational session from 2-3 p.m. Feb. 14, at the Rifle Library, 207 East Ave.

Literacy Outreach is a local nonprofit teaching essential literacy skills to adults one word at a time. Call 970-945-5282 or visit for more information.
