On The Road To Literacy

Whether you're new at volunteer tutoring or have been tutoring for years, whether you tutor teens or adults, there is always something for everyone at the annual On The Road to Literacy Conference.

This year's event will be held on Saturday, April 12th, beginning at 9 a.m. at the University of Illinois-Chicago. Co-sponsors are the Literacy Volunteers of Illinois and the UIC Center for Literacy.

This year's daylong session will feature 24 workshops whose speakers will be presenting strategies, techniques, materials and games to use to help tutors build their student's vocabulary, pronunciation, conversation, comprehension, reading, writing, computer and computational skill.

Educators, staff, tutors, and new readers from adult literacy programs and government and social service agencies from throughout the Chicago area will lead the 50-minute presentations.

The conference will conclude at 1:30 p.m. with the annual Tutor of the Year Awards presentation, which recognizes the good work of volunteer tutors throughout the Chicago area.

Early registration for the On The Road to Literacy Conference is $20 for tutors, $15 for students (high school, college or adult learners). After April 5th, registration is $23 for tutors and $18 for students. Registration covers morning refreshments, box lunch and all conference materials.

For further information call (312) 857-1582 or visit for a schedule, listing of workshops and registration information.
