The Literacy Council of Wood County (LCWC) relies on community volunteers to help fulfill our mission. There are several ways you can volunteer your time and talent.
Become a Tutor
Tutors work with adults one-on-one, or in small groups. Tutors work in one or more of our program areas including Adult Basic Education (ABE), English Language Learning (ELL), Computer literacy, or Health literacy.
The LCWC provides training and year-round support for people interested in Tutoring.
Tutors do not need a teaching background. You need patience and the willingness to help adults learn to read, speak, and write. Training sessions are held four times a year (twice in Marshfield, and twice in the Wisconsin Rapids area). Training requires eight to 10 hours over two days/evenings, plus some on-line sessions on your own.
Help in our Resource Center or on a committee
The LCWC needs volunteers to assist in our Resource Center, on projects from your own home or business, making community presentations, Testing adult learners, and on planning committees. Committees focus on programs, services, and special events. Contact us for information about how you can get involved.
