Do you want to help? St. Joseph County Literacy TutorsYou can get involved with the St. Joseph County Literacy Council's efforts to help adults learn to read. We consider new applications for tutors in the Three Rivers area, and have a critical need for tutors in the Sturgis areas. While many retired teachers volunteer to be tutors, there's no requirement to have experience as an educator to take part. You simply need your own proficiency in reading and be willing to work with students one-on-one. The time commitment is usually one-hour per week.

To volunteer, send us an email using the form on the Contact Us page, or call Literacy Council office in Centreville at (269) 816-2057. Our application process does include a background check. Once accepted, prospective tutors will need to attend training sessions in Kalamazoo put on by the Kalamazoo Literacy Council before they begin tutoring.  The cost of the training is paid by the St. Joseph County Literacy Council.
