Creek County Literacy Program Offers Free Tutor Training Workshop to Adult Volunteers
Help Teach An Adult to Read. Become a Volunteer Literacy Tutor.
(SAPULPA, OK – October 6, 2022) Adult literacy volunteers are needed to help Creek County area adults improve their reading, writing, and basic math skills.
- Twenty percent of adults in Creek County, 18 to 24 years old, do not have a high school diploma.
- Ten percent of adults in Creek County 25 years of age and older do not have a high school diploma.
- Twelve percent of Oklahoma adults – more than 400,000 – are functionally illiterate.
Creek County Literacy Program is a non-profit organization that trains adults to become volunteer literacy tutors and then matches those tutors with adult learners. To become a tutor, individuals must attend Creek County Literacy Program’s free one-day Tutor Training workshop. Knowledge of another language is not necessary, and no prior teaching experience is required. This workshop is scheduled for Wednesday, October 26, from 9 am to 4 pm at Creek County Literacy Program, 15 North Poplar Street in Sapulpa. Lunch is provided.
