Volunteers needed to help program

Learn to Read St. Lucie County, Inc., is a non-profit agency with one full time and one part time employee, a board of directors and 214 volunteers.  We are in an urgent need of local sponsors and volunteers.

We continue to add adult learners to our roles, but do not have the volunteers to teach them.

In the past two years, we have been able to increase the number of learners we can serve by opening our computer language laboratory in our Fort Pierce Office. 

Computer lab satellite is on Tuesdays at the Morningside Library in Port St. Lucie.  This allows learners to have a site closer to their homes.  Before that, a learner had to wait for a tutor to become available.

Now even if the tutor is not available, learners can begin to learn by using interactive software, such as Rosetta Stone, Ultimate Phonics and Connected Speech.  Many of the people we serve supplement their learning by using the lab after beginning to work with a tutor.

No other programs in St. Lucie County offer one-on-one literacy or English as a second language training for preliterate adults.  Learn to Read has a waiting list that grows every month.

We provide training for those individuals interested in joining this very important program.

If you are interested in registering for a training session, then please call our executive director, Luz Ma Camacho at (772) 464-2747.

Also, please contact the office if you would like to volunteer to tutor, help in the office, help write grants, etc.
