For the 40+ years that Literacy Volunteers of Rensselaer County has been in existence, we have called our volunteers who work with students “TUTORS”. It is time for an update! Effective immediately, our tutors will now be called, know as, designated—- “Volunteer Adult Literacy Educators.” This title paints a truer picture of the role our volunteers play in helping students learn to read or speak English or improve those skills. I think it also sends a message to the volunteers as to how much we respect and appreciate the skills and expertise they bring to each session with their students.
