Schedule a Fall On-Site Volunteer Training Session Today!

It’s finally summer in Minnesota, which means that fall is just around the corner! Jump start your fall classes by scheduling an on-site volunteer training to prepare your volunteers to effectively support learners.

The Minnesota Literacy Council offers a wide variety of workshops for volunteers who work as one-on-one tutors, classroom assistants, and lead teachers. Workshops are available at the MN Literacy Council’s main office, but programs can also request free on-site trainings where the trainer will come to your site and provide an interactive hands-on workshop tailored to the needs of your volunteers. All you need is 10 volunteers and chairs for them to sit on!

Popular training topics include: teaching conversation, learner-centered teaching practices, how adult brains learn language, and many more! Programs can also request a special topic, and have a new workshop developed just for them.

A full catalog of workshop options is available at  Contact Andrea Echelberger at [email protected] for adult ESL trainings, and Rob Podlasek at [email protected] for children’s and GED trainings.
