Become a Tutor
Spending just an hour or two per week to help strengthen someone’s literacy skills is a simple act that makes a profound difference in another’s life. We rely on nearly 200 volunteers to help us provide English as a Second Language and basic literacy instruction to more than 250 adults in Centre and Clearfield counties every year.
Volunteers work as private tutors and small group leaders to teach adult learners the literacy skills they need to keep their families healthy, get jobs, earn degrees, become U.S. citizens, gain confidence and give back to their community. Volunteering with Mid-State is a labor of love that personally enriches the tutor almost as much as the student. No prior experience is necessary, and training is provided for all volunteers.
Additionally, if you’d like to get involved with Mid-State but don’t wish to be a tutor, we can always use more help with events and other important tasks.
