Literacy volunteers are trained by a ProLiteracy tutor trainer at locations throughout Southside. See our BLOG for dates of upcoming training. Speak to a program manager at your local PARTNER organization to find out the number of hours required for the initial training. All volunteers are supported with professional development opportunities throughout the year, such as the Virginia Literacy Leadership Conference, the Virginia Literacy Fair, and tutor exchanges.
