When I first retired, I wanted to give back to the community & stay active. I always loved education and teaching, LAB was a perfect fit for me. I get to do what I enjoy & also see the growth of the person I am assisting. It is so rewarding

I very much enjoy meeting people from other cultures. I honor my father by supporting literacy. I honor my mother by supporting an organization that seeks to improve the employability of others.

While I enjoyed my 23 year career, I always regretted not having a chance to use my education degree. I am so happy to see my learner improve her reading ability & also use my previous work experience as LAB treasurer.

IF YOU WANT TO TOUCH THE FUTURE

TOUCH A LIFE

Literacy for Adults in Brevard is a 501c (3) nonprofit educational organization.

                    Our tutors work with adult learners to improve their skills in reading, writing, and communication                        using accredited programs, "adutilizing" their own real-life contextual learning experiences.

Tutors work to continually encourage their students to achieve their goals.

You’ll be happy to know that being a teacher is not a requirement.
Do you enjoy reading?
Do you like helping people?
Do you like to be organized when you take on a project or plan?

After completing an application, you will be interviewed by a volunteer coordinator.

You will then be introduced to our online training.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

LAB students also complete an application and go through an interview process. Additionally, Students have an assessment to determine what they specifically need to learn to achieve their goals. At that time, the volunteer coordinator will work to identify the best available tutor to work with this student.
 
It is the tutor’s responsibility to contact the student to determine the day, time, and place you will meet. Tutors typically meet at least once a week for 90 minutes with the student in the library closest to the student’s home. Tutors are responsible for making the arrangements with the library reference desk.
 
The Tutor Resource Team will determine the materials the tutor will use for their student.

Whatever your background, we will help you develop the knowledge and skills to be a successful LAB tutor.  Your role as tutor is to help someone achieve their goal, to be a facilitator of adult learning, not just teaching a skill or subject, but to accelerate the student’s ability to go forward on their own.
