Youth Literacy tutors work with children from low-income families who read, write, and/or spell below grade level. Tutors in this program complete an initial orientation and 16-20 hours of training, which includes some pre-course work and/or homework ( short articles to read, short videos to watch). They then receive follow-up support and the option to attend in-service training throughout their tutoring commitment.
Tutors in this program work with their students twice per week for 50 minutes each session for at least one school year. Literacy Together has identified two afterschool programs to work with their students: YTL (Youth Transformed for Life) in North Asheville, and Christine W. Avery students in Montford.
