DO YOU KNOW IF YOU COUNT?
The unemployment rate for the City of New Haven is reported at only 8.4
%*
The State of Connecticut Department of Labor using the following definitions determines that figure:
LABOR FORCE CONCEPTS (As reprinted from DOL Office of Research)
The civilian labor force comprises all state residents age 16 years and older classified as employed or unemployed in accordance with criteria
described I dow. Excluded are members of the military and persons in institutions (correctional and mental health, for example).
The employed are all persons who did any work as paid employees or in their own business during the survey week, or who have’ worked 15
hours or nero
unpaid workers in an enterprise operated by a family member. Persons temporarily absent from ajob because of illness. bad
weather, strike’ or for personal reasons are also counted as employed whether they were paid by their employer or were seeking otherjohs.
Th’ unemployed ai-e all persons who did not work, but were available for work during the survey week (except for temporary illness) and
made specific efforts to find ajob in the prior four weeks. Persons waiting to be recalled to ajob from which they had been laid off need not he’
looking for work to be classified as unemployed.
The unemployment rate represents the number unemployed as a percent of the civilian labor force.
With the except:on of those persons temporarily absent from ajob or waiting to be recalled to one, poons with no job and who ore
J1” ookmngior one are counted as “not in the labor force”.
5
‘
Over the course of a yeai, the size of the labor force and levels of employment undergo fluctuations due to such seasonal events as changes in
weather, reduced or expanded production, harvests, major holidays and closing of schools. Because these seasonal events follow a regular
pattern each year, their influence on statistical trends can be eliminated by adjusting the monthly statistics. Seasonal Adjustment makes it easier
to observe cyclical and other non-seasonal developments.
The state Job Service is where you would traditionally receive help in seeking out employers who are hiring and receive other services
to help prepare for the job market,
MAKE SURE YOU COUNT!
Go and get registered with the State of Connecticut Department of Labor 37 Marne Street as a Job Seeker.
Keep in monthly contact stay included in the unemployment rate.

Ready To Work
Program summery
On October 15, 2014, the U.S. Department of Labor announced S 169,771,960 in grants to expedite the
employment of Americans struggling with long-term unemployment. The grants are part of the Ready to
Work Partnership (Ready To Work) initiative to support and scale innovative collaborations between
employers, nonprofit organizations and federal job training programs to help connect ready-to-work
Americans with ready-to-be-filled jobs. (in CT $12 million)
-
This program responds to the Presidents call to action to support and expand public-private partnerships
that are helping long-term unemployed individuals get back to work. The Ready To Work grant program
will provide those experiencing long-term unemployment with a range of training and supportive and
specialized services leading to rapid employment in middle and high-skilled jobs.
Ready To Work projects are built around a comprehensive, up-front assessment of long-term unemployed
individuals needs and skills, resulting in customized interventions across three tracks: 1) intensive coaching
and other short-term, specialized services culminating in directjob placement into middle and high-skilled
jobs; 2) short-term interventions leading to employment into middle and high-skill ed jobs; and 3)
accelerated skills training along a career pathway to middle and high skilled jobs.
Projects incorporate work-based training models with earning components for long-term unemployed
workers through models such as on-the-job training (OJT), paid work experience, paid internships, and
Registered Apprenticeships. These programs also include tangible commitments from employers and other
partners to provide employment opportunities, technical skills training, and on-the-job training and other
paid work experience for H-I B occupations, while also addressing the barriers, income needs, and
supportive service needs unique to long-term unemployed workers.

What do you need to do to
find the kind of enjoyment or
progress you want in your
career? Joel Carfinide, founder
of Dream Job Coaching, a con
sulting firm specializing in per
sonal fulfillment and
professional transformation
based in Oakland, California,
offers these suggestions.
DEilllE WHICH ASPECTS
OF YOUR JOB YOU LIXE
Then find a way to do more
of whatever that is. When you
are engrossed in a project you
like, your workday will be ener
gizing rather than draining. You
may also find that the tasks you
enjoy are the same ones a
coworker or boss dislikes. Find
out if you can work out a winwin situation.
LEARN FROM THE BEST
AROUND YOU
Who in your office seems to
really enjoy—and excel—at
their work? What can you learn
from them? People who like
coming to work radiate positive
energy, and their spirit can be
infectious. Let the energy rub
off on you.
DETERMINE YOUR
CAREER SIGNATURE
If you had to write down one
statement that would encom
pass who you are (or want to
be) professionally and personal
ly, what would it say? Take
some time to clarify your
unique signature, and use this
statement as a guiding force in
pursuing what you want to do
and whom you want to be.
RECOONIZE WHAT ‘YOU CAN
Al4O CANdOT CONTROL
Write down the things that
stress you out at work. Circle
the ones you have control over,
and cross out the ones you
don’t. Vow to stop spending
energy on the crossed-out items
redirect your energy on finding
solutions to the problems you
can change.
ments to your resume, which you
should be updating regularly.
CULTIVATE FRIENDSIIPS
AT WORK
Your coworkers can under
stand and appreciate what life is
like in your office better than
anyone else. Take the time to
develop friendly relationships
with them. You’ll benefit per
sonally and professionally from
the time you invest in getting to
know them.
SEE THE BIG PICTURE AND ThE
LITTLE PICTURES
What is the big picture—
your overall vision—for your
professional life? Now what are
the small daily steps or little
pictures that will get you there?
Make a small goal, like joining
a professional organization or
finding a mentor—something
you can accomplish today.
MAKE SURE YOU’RE ON
THE RIGHT PATH
Are you really doing what
you want to do? Does what you
think you should be doing
interfere with what you want to
be doing? None of the above
suggestions will work if your
career isn’t aligned with your
true interests, personality traits
and natural abilities. If a career
assessment is in order, make
this your first priority.

How to Effectively Market Yourself for a Job When You’ve Been Long-Term Unemployed
www.shrm.org
For most people losing ajob is a devastating experience. Not finding one right away is even more discouragmg, hut the sooner
you get started looking and the more dedicated you are, the more likely your search will be a positive experience.
The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) is the largest HR association in the world, with more than 275,000
members, Our members, HR professionals in organizations representing all sizes and industries, recognize that as a result of the
years-lonq economic downturn, an unprecedented number of Americans have been unemployed for six months or more.
We are educating our members on how to review their organization’s hiring procedures to ensure they do not intentionally or
inadvertently c;ive less consideration to certain job candidates based solely on their unemployment status. Nevertheless, having a
resume with gaps in work history can pose a challenge for thejob seeker. This challenge is not insurmountable, and SHRM
members offer the following advice to help you, as ajob seeker, put your best foot forward.
Step 1: Approach yourjob search as though it WERE yourjob
Devote time— up to eight hoUrs a day—to finding a job. Set a schedule with daily tasks in order to establish a structured
routine. Having a schedule makes people more efficient. Giving yourself a deadline by, say, blocking off 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. to work
on an application or make your calls is better than saying you’ll get around to it as soon as you can.
Try to maintain a flexible attitude, and project a willingness to learn. Your old job/career may not exist anymore, so you may
need to develop new skills or apply the old ones in a different way.
If you are feeling stuck, seek out groups of people who are in the same situation. Many community centers, religious entities
and other organizations host meetings for job seekers. It may help you to discuss your efforts with others.
Step 2: Stay active by engaging in productive activities
Find activities to show that you are still engaged in your community and focused on gaining skills and qualifications. Activities
also fill time on your resume, showing employers that you haven’t been stagnant since you left your previous position.
•
Personal Development or Professional Development
Classes at a community college, university or training program can keep you up-to-date with technology and other trends in
your field so that you’ll be informed when you do go on interviews or even chat informally with employers.
Many educational institutions have career centers with well-connected advisors who know what employers are looking for
and who is hiring. Consider a training program or temporary position, offered by many employers, Short-term positions give
you a chance to test-drive a specific job or company.
Development Through Volunteer Engagement
Volunteering can involve much more than planting trees and painting buildings; it’s also a great way to learn new skills. You
can design a website, organize an event, write letters on behalf of the organization or have any variety of other responsibilities.
Volunteering can give you exposure to a new field or allow you to try out a new career.
Volunteering at a specific
organization you want to work for is an excellent way to get your foot in the door and make a notable first impression. If you can
show you are a valuable and effective volunteer, employers will think you may make a valuable and effective employee.
Volunteering enables you to expand your network. By working on a cause you are passionate about, you will meet likeminded people, some of whom may be able to help with yourjob search.
Volunteering is a fun and valuable way to break up the monotony and provide you with an anchor while you look for a job. It
can also provide a sense of accomplishment.
Step 3: Update and revise your resume
Understand the online application process before submitting your resume. Applying for ajob today requires that you tailor
your resume to the specific position. Before submitting your resume, make sure it contains some of the key words that are
outlined in the job description.
Use terms that apply to the specific job and/or industry. Sprinkling in newer terms can show that you’re current with the
technology and other trends of the field,
Include accomplishments—both at work and outside of it—so employers can see how you’ve done, notjust what you’ve clone.
Quantify your experiences, Use numbers to communicate changes or improvements you have made over a specific period.
Examples include quantitative gains in production or performance, notable customer satisfaction, greater organizational
performance, cost reductions or cost avoidance.
Include legitimate volunteer or nontraditional work experience, to eliminate or decrease any gaps in employment.
If your formal education occurred more than 10 years ago, consider taking dates off and adding other training or education
Ou have obtained since then.
Step 4: Network, network, network
Networking is still the most effective way to find out about jobs, Prepare your “elevator speech,” in which you describe your skills
and career goals in two minutes. Preparing ahead helps you take advantage of opportunities to talk, at a moment’s notice, with
someone who may be in a position to help you,
•
Reach out to family, friends, neighbors and associates.
Use your connections to your advantage. The more people you know, the better your chances of finding and landing a job.
Talk vvith your previous employers and co-workers. People who have seen you at work before and are in your field of experience
can be the best people to know.
Seek out community groups for assistance, including those for unemployed people, who help one another with leads,
references and other support. Programs, both formal and informal, have started in communities nationwide.
If you can’t find a group in your community, start one. With nearly a quarter of Americans laid off at some point because of the
recession, you do not have to be alone in your search. Be willing to help others in your groups. Paying it forward can be of great
benefit when your colleagues get settled in a new role. Not only will it help you, but it looks great to businesses if you let them
know you started a group or are active in one that helps people in the community.
•
Use online sites, including Linkedln.
If you don’t have a L.inkedln profile, create one. Employers use this site to look for new talent so make sure your profile
contains keywords that are relevant to jobs that interest you.
Use the search function on Linkedln to find profiles of people seeking positions similar to what you are interested in pursuinn
Then use these profiles as templates to modi/ your profile.
See vvhat companies your connections and their connections have worked for. Those who worked at a company a few years
ago likely still know people who work there.
Join groups that apply to you. Many industries, regions and even companies have their own pages. These are a great source
of information and a way to keep current with what’s happening in a particular field.
•
Reach out to employers that interest you.
Many companies host open houses or exhibitions to showcase their work. If it looks interesting to you, check it out. Ask
queshons and make some contacts, too.
If you want to talk with someone at an organization, go for it. Reach out to a firm you have great interest in and ask to come
in
and learn more about it. Don’t mention employment in the first conversation. A good first impression can lead to that important
referral or helpful information.
•
Look for local nonprofit or government organizations that can help you with yourjob search.
Never pay an organization to find you a job—most likely it is not a legitimate business.
Take advantage of the services that government-funded Career One Stop centers offer. These centers provide free assistance
to job seekers. More information is available at httpj/www.careeronestop.org/
Learn about local nonprofit organizations serving the long-term unemployed. The programs are as varied as the cornrriunities
they serve and can be researched online.
Step 5: Become More Technologically Proficient
It’s no secret that many employers look up their applicants online. While most people know to keep offensive pictures and
posts off Facehook, you can take this a step further by creating a brand for yourself. Use Linkedln as your primary tool, but
earn
more about how to effectively use Twitter and Facebook as a means of “branding yourself.”
Social networks are an excellent way to interact with potential employers. Sharing information via a status update on Linkedin
or re-tweeting or tweeting at an employer or sending messages on Facebook with relevant information can get you noticed.
Scanning blogs on relevant topics allows you to stay up-to-date with the industry and hear different perspectives. Commenting
on blogs and engaging with their authors are other valuable methods of gaining contacts in the field.
Joining listserves is a great way to crowdsource your information gathering. People often mention opportunities they heard
of
or topics they think are worth sharing.
Although it’s efficient to comb through the larger online job boards, it’s worth noting that many listings receive hundreds
of
applicants. One way to find less visible opportunities is to research what companies you might like to work for and
search their
sites for vacancies. It takes longer to do this, but you mayjust find that perfect under-the-radar opportunity. Following
up your
application with a message to the company contact person further enhances your potential of being noticed.
If you need help in navigating the world of computers or even getting access to a computer consider a local library. Most
libraries have computers available to the public, and some offer free resources like classes or coaching. Career One-Stops
also
offer classes and computers for public use.
Step 6: Prepare for your future interview
Get fit by exercising and eating right. When you feel good you will come across well in an interview.
Consider how you look. A good haircut and neat, clean business attire are a way to say “I respect myself.” You don’t have
to
buy expensive suits if you don’t have the budget; just scour the resale shops, and make sure the clothes fit and are clean and
ironed.
Address gaps in your resume’s work history upfront. Offering an explanation prevents a potential employer from making
assumptions that may be incorrect. Similarly, take the opportunity to address any possible concerns about your being
overqualified for the position. When a candidate raises the issue, this can help put an employer’s mind at ease.
Never underestimate the value of a handwritten note. Send one to each person who takes time to meet with you in an
interview or with whom you have a key networking conversation. In a high-tech world, the high-touch approach always
gets
noticed.

a Job nterviw
àQlzsh cnnfrfi11gWtPr
For many job seekers, the”Do
you have any questions for
me?” portion of an interview
signals the end is ncai It’s
tempting to just sav”no” and
get out of the hot seat as
quickly as possible, but fight
that urge.
Asking questions shows the
interviewer you were listening
while they were talking, con
veVs your interest in the corn
pany and helps you decide if
it’s where you want to work.
After all, interviews are a two
way street the hiring team
decides whether you’re what
they want in an employee, and
you decide if the company
culture and specific role are
where you want to devote
your time and energy for the
foreseeable future.
--
Rere are five essenfial ques
tions you should ak in a
job interview,
1. “how do yno define suc
cess for this Job?”
This question helps you get a
clear understanding of what
the job entails and the expc
tations the company will have
for you in it, says John Crossman, president of real estate
management firm Crossman
& Company.
For example, if you’re apply
ing for a sales position, an
answer to this question might
be that you acquire 10 new cli
ents in the next 90 days. It
may also he that you upsell
current custoñiers by 25 per
cent over 90 days. As a candi
date, you’ll want to know
whether you’ll be cold-calling
prospects or focusing on exist
ing customers before you
make your decision.
2. SomethIng spedc about
the organization
It’s always a reat idea to ask
a question that shows you did
your research before the inter
view says Chris Delaney,
author of”The 73 Rules of
Influencing the Interview.” He
recommends building rapport
and showcasing your research
skills with a technique he calls
“share expertise, ask ques
tion.”
“If the interviewer responds
that they love how they can
make their yoga class each
night and log back onto work
from home if needed, then
you know the company takes
work-life balance seriously,”
she explains.
-
His example: “1 recently read
that the organization is look
ing to break into Europe.
What do you foresee as the
main barrier with this proj
ect?”
3.”Can I have a quick
tour?”
See also: “Can I meet some
people I’d be working with?”
Both questipns will get you
out of the interview room and
allow you to get a better look
at the office. This will give you
a chance to gauge co-worker
interaction, workspace design
(lighting, noise level, cleanli
ness) and the detartment as a
whole, says Michelle Corner,
practice area leader and vice
president at the Messina
Group, a staffing consulting
firm.
Requesting a tour or a quick
introduction to potential co
workers also “signals to the
interviewer that a candidate is
taking a vested interest in the
position,” she says.
4. “What is your favorite
part about working here?”
“Companies, like job candi
dates, are putting their best
foot forward during the inter
view process, often highlight
ing all of their corporate
perks. By asking evetv person
you interview with what they
like best about working at the
company you’ll get a better
sense of the perks that people
regularly experience versus
the perks that live only on
paper,” explains Sherry Dixon,
a senior vice president at
Adecco Staffing US.
s. “Do you see any reason I
might not be a good 1t for
this postion?”
It may seem counterintuitive
to inquire about your poten
tial flaws during an intervie
but it’s actually a great thing
to bring up at the end of the
interview says ?.torgan Nich
ols, managig partner at Chi
cago-based recruiting and
staffing firm Torre & Gray.
“This gives you an opportuni
ty to know that the interview
er is thinking about you and
gives you a last chance to clar
ify any misconceptions they
may have or elaborate further
on something important.”
WORKFORCE INVESTMENT ACT
What is WIA?
“WIN’ stands for the “Workforce Investment Act.” This legislation, passed by Congress
in 1998, provides federal funds for employment and training assistance. WIA services
help people improve their opportunities for getting a job, increase their wages, and
provides money for job skills training.
The WIA program is administered by a Workforce Investment Boards (or WIB) in each
region of CT. WIA procedures vary depending on the region of the state in which a
person lives. But the basic procedure is:
•
Contact a CT Works office and tell staff that you interested in WIA training.
•
You will be scheduled for a WIA orientation/overview session.
After the WIA orientation/overview session, you will be scheduled for another
meeting to see whether you are eligible for WIA. For adults, WIA funds are
divided into 2 categories. If you meet the requirements of one of these
categories, you are eligible.
Adult have low income and lack job skills that are currently in demand, or
Dislocated Worker have been or will be laid off because of the current
economic situation (as opposed to leaving a job for personal reasons) and need
job skills that are currently in demand.
—
—
If you are eligible, a case manager will review training options with you.
Please note that WIA funds are limited. Even if you are eligible, training funds
are not guaranteed

Rides To Work Gets You To Job
Interviews Congratulations. You
have a job interview at a business in
another town. How are you going to
get there? Check out RTW.
—
The road to employment starts with
an interview. Today’s jobs are often
many miles away from where people
live. RTW may provide transportation
to job interviews or job fairs, across
town or 30 miles away. In many cases,
the job fairs are on-site at employers
that also have regular transportation
available for workers.
560 Ella T. Grasso Blvd, New Haven, CT 06519
T: 203-867-4030 x245, F: 203-562-1106, E: [email protected]
The Workforce Alliance and the CT Department of Labor often arrange on-site job fairs at an employer’s location. Job fairs are a big help for
employers. Reading your resume is not enough; employers must meet and interview job-seekers. Job fairs save employers time and money,
and increase your chances of landing a good job.
The RTW Auto Emergency Fund Car repair bills and the rising cost of insurance can take a big chunk out of a paycheck. Sometimes, it’s just
too much. The RTW Auto Emergency Fund offers one-time grants up to $600 to help you keep your car on the road. Use it for repairs,
registration or driver’s license fees, or to pay car insurance. Don’t let a bump in the road keep you from getting to work.
-
Start Right Don’t let the cost of commuting keep you from taking a job. Try “Job Starter”, the RTW program that provides free
transportation for your first month of employment. “Job Starter” gives you time to catch up and begin affording the commute.

Eligible employees can also get ongoing subsidized shuttle bus service to jobs on heavily traveled routes along the shoreline from Milford to
Old Saybrook.

Program
Putting Healthy Food Within Reach
Employment and Training
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly known as Food Stamps) recipients throughout
Connecticut may be eligible to participate in an Employment and Training Program. The Employment and
Training program was created by Congress in 1987 as a means to assist able-bodied clients in obtaining
employment. From the start, the purpose of the Employment and Training program has been to help
SNAP households gain skills that will increase self-sufficiency. States are allowed flexibility in designing and
operating their Employment and Training programs.
If you are receiving SNAP in Connecticut, and not receiving financial assistance from the Temporary Family
Assistance program, you may be eligible to participate in one of the following activities; English as a Second
Language, General Equivalency Diploma, Adult Basic Education, Work Experience or Structured Job Search
Skill Training. The Connecticut Employment and Training program also offers short term vocational
programs at several area colleges and nonprofit providers.
DSS has currently partnered with ten organizations to provide these Employment and Training program
services. They are:
i. Career Resources
Bridgeport
203-610-8677
2. Community Renewal Team
Hartford
860-560-5765
3. Eastern CT Workforce Investment Board

4. The Kennedy Center

10. Workforce Alliance
All nine have entered into agreements with DSS to help eligible SNAP recipients gain the skills they need to
find employment in the currentjob market. All ten do their own recruiting and will be happy to discuss
their programs with Connecticut SNAP recipients. Interested persons do not need to live in the town where
the services are provided and may self-initiate at any location.

well-trainedjob applicants.
The Working Group, which included individuals representing the business
and institutional community, labor, elected leaders, city officials, foundations,
the workforce system, un- and under-employed residents, and youth,
advocated for a new program called ‘New Haven Works” that would partner
with employers, service providers and the workforce system to match
qualified New Haven residents to regional job opportunities.
New Haven Works seeks to grow the local economy and improve
economic stability in all communities by providing employers with a trained
and qualified workforce and connecting residents to goodjobs.
Established in October 2012, New Haven Works is governed by an
independent board of directors, and will be funded by public and private
sources.
New Haven Works opened an office at 205 Whitney Avenue —just one
year after the first convening of the Board of Aldermen’s Working Group!

Our Mission

Our Services
NCD is a group of college students committed to bridging the gap between the college community
and New Haven at large. We offer a welcoming environment providing case management for lowincome and homeless clients. NCD is run entirely by volunteers, with cooperation from several
gracious community partners.
No Closed Doors aims to harness the skills of college students to break down barriers and open
doors between people and the resources that they need to succeed. We believe that everyone in our
community should have access to the services, opportunities and attention they need to achieve
personal success.
Our service is unique in that it has no eligibility requirements for clients. We do not turn anyone
away, unless they pose a security threat to themselves, other clients or volunteers. In addition, there
is no limit on the services that clients can receive from us. All of our volunteers are passionate and
friendly college students, eager to provide flexible and comprehensive assistance that complements
the more specialized services provided by other community organizations. Our program is also
unique for students, as it provides an outlet for them to make a direct, substantial, and meaningful
impact in the community in which they live and study.
NCD open:

Frequently Asked Questions
Youve got questions. Weve got answers.
For example:
How is the climate/weather in North Dakota?
North Dakota experiences all four seasons and has amp
le activities to enjoy in each. A common
misconception is that it always is cold in North Dakota.
It comes as a surprise to many that North Dakota
actually has a remarkably long temperate season, inclu
ding beautiful sunny days in June, when the sun
rises before 6 a.m. and sets after 9:30 p.m. Below are
average temperatures and what to expect from each
season.
Summer Perfect for all outdoor activities. The days are
warm, sometimes even hot, but nights are cool
enough for a restful sleep. Expect an average temperatu
re of 82° Fahrenheit (28’ Celsius).
Fall The first frost, which usually occurs about midSeptember, signals the end of summer season for
many North Dakotans as the days are pleasantly warm
, the nights cool and precipitation light. Expect an
average temperature of 66° Fahrenheit (19° Celsius).
Winter Winter is a grand season to many North
Dakotans. It is the season for snowmobiling in open,
uncrowded fields and for such vigorous outdoor recre
ation as ice skating, ice hockey, cross country skiing
and snowshoeing. Expect an average temperature
of 24° Fahrenheit (-4° Celsius).
Spring Spring is a time of rapid change in North Dako
ta. It seems that almost overnight in late March or
early April the snow mantle melts, the fertile soils dry
and field preparations begins. Expect an average
temperature of 52° Fahrenheit (11 Celsius).

What is Literacy Volunteers?
Literacy Volunteers of Greater New Haven is a non-profit organization that has been active in the
region since 1976. Last year Literacy Volunteers supported 231 volunteer tutors who delivered
free tutoring to more than 1246 adult students at 37 sites.
Literacy Volunteers is supported by Connecticut Department of Education funds, private
foundations and community grants (CDBG dollars, the Community Foundation of Greater New
Haven, United Way of Meriden/Wallingford, the Valley United Way, the Valley Community
Foundation) as well as donations from individuals and businesses.
How Does the Program Work?
Adults who speak English but need help learning to read at a higher level work together in small
groups. The groups meet twice a week with trained volunteer tutors using an established
curriculum with workbooks. A computer software program provides additional help.
Non-English speaking (ESOL or English for Speakers of Other Languages) adults also work with
tutors in small group settings. Classes are held weekly at a variety of sites throughout the area.
Day and night time classes are offered. All classes are free and are set up on a semester basis.
Who are the Tutors?
Tutors come from many different backgrounds
men and women of all ages and diverse life
experiences. They may be retired, have full-time jobs or they may be students. Many have some
college experience. Only a few have previously taught. What tutors have in common is their
desire to help someone improve his or her life.
—
Tutors go through an Orientation and Training Program before they start tutoring. They receive
ongoing support from Literacy Volunteers program managers, who help the tutors prepare
lessons, test students and locate helpful resource materials.
