Volunteers Needed

January 24, 1999

Schools, libraries and literacy programs seek volunteers to help children and adults improve reading skills.

Among them are:

Partnership for Learning, an agency of the Baltimore state's attorney's office, to work with first-time juvenile offenders who have reading difficulties and learning disabilities. The partnership will train prospective tutors in the multisensory phonics-based Wilson Learning System of reading instruction, with the next scheduled session from 9 a.m to 3 p.m. Saturday. Contact: Mischa Green, 410-396-5092.

Maryland Associates for Dyslexic Adults and Youth, Rotunda, Suite 310, 711 W. 40th St., Baltimore, which provides free services, including remedial tutoring. MADAY needs qualified tutors to work at public sites with people of average or above-average intelligence who are dyslexic, and have low functional reading and low income. Tutors must attend a seven-session training program. The next sessions are planned for next month. Information: 410-889-5487.

If your school or organization is seeking volunteer reading tutors and would like to be included in this listing, call Sundial, 410- 783-1800, and enter code 6130.
