Volunteers needed

August 29, 1999

Area schools and literacy programs seek volunteers to help children and adults improve reading skills and to assist in related projects.

Among them is:

Partnership for Learning, an agency of the Baltimore state's attorney's office, which needs volunteers to work two hours a week with first-time juvenile offenders who have reading difficulties and learning disabilities. A nine-month commitment is necessary. 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. Sept. 18. Contact: Mischa Green, 410-396-5092.

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.
