United Way of Central Carolinas is partnering with UNC Charlotte and the Center for Adolescent Literacy to hold a tutor training for volunteers who work with children and youth in one of our partner agencies.
This training will provide you with the basic knowledge and skills needed to build an effective relationship with a child you tutor. For your convenience, we are offering 2 trainings on Feb. 26th from 9-11 a.m. and 6-8 p.m. at Hope Haven, Inc., a United Way partner agency.
Parking is free ***Enter from Craighead Street and follow United Way event signs to the Conference Center***
United Way realizes that afterschool programs, tutoring programs, and mentoring programs have a direct impact on increasing academic achievement for children. That's why, as part of its Collective Impact pilot initiative in children and youth/education, United Way has set a goal of recruiting and training 1,000 volunteers to serve as tutors, readers, and mentors in select United Way funded agencies.
Volunteers can commit as little as an hour a week to reading, tutoring, or mentoring a child. Take the pledge today! Call Sarah Degnan at 704-371-6255 for a complete list of volunteer opportunities.
