VOCAL AmeriCorps (Volunteer Outreach for Community Action in Literacy)

Program Description:

The goal of the VOCAL program is to assist community, school and faith-based agencies in providing increased services to low literate individuals in their communities through a three-pronged approach that consists of: One-to-one and small group tutoring by AmeriCorps members; recruitment of volunteers to serve as one-to-one and small group tutors; and, a member training and development program that will instill in program participants a lifelong ethic of service, as well as provide them with the training and hands-on experience they need should they choose to pursue a career within the adult education field.
