Redwood City's Project READ Recruiting Volunteer Tutors to Help a Child, Teen, or Adult Succeed at Learning

Redwood City, CA - February 5, 2004 - Volunteers are being sought by Redwood City Project READ to work one-on-one with local residents who have made a commitment to learn to read, and attain personal educational goals. Before being matched with learners, Project READ tutors complete an informative Tutor Training Workshop scheduled conveniently throughout the year.

The next tutor training session begins Thursday, Feb. 19, from 6 to 9 p.m. at Redwood City Library, 1044 Middlefield Road. The sessions continue on Sat., Feb. 21 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m, and conclude with sessions on Tuesday Feb. 24 and Thursday, Feb. 26 from 6 to 9 p.m.

“Our tutors tell us that one of the most satisfying aspects of this program is being able to get to know a motivated student and enjoy a mutual learning experience over time,” Kathy Endaya, director of the nonprofit agency formed in 1987.

For further information, or to register for an upcoming tutoring session, call Project READ at the Redwood City Public Library at (650) 780-7077. Project READ’s website is http://www.projectread-redwoodcty.org/.
