GET INVOLVED with Fond du Lac Literacy Services
Thank you for considering Fond du Lac Literacy Service as a place to volunteer your time and talent. Our volunteers are important to us and make it possible for fulfill our mission. We look forward to hearing from you and beginning the process of joining our team. Tutoring is our main area in need of volunteers. We will train you and provide support.
Volunteer tutors work one-on-one with adult learners to meet their learning goals. This is a 1-2 hour per week commitment. Most meetings are held at the FDL Public Library. We will train you and provide all material. Tutors are matched with learners who have the same availability so we will work with your schedule!
If you are looking for something different, consider the other options for volunteering with us:
Classes are held at a local stone quarry on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 3:30-4:30 pm. Volunteers will assist the main teacher by helping students stay on task, answering questions, and working in small groups.
English Conversation Group
English Conversation Groups are drop-in meetings for any English Language learner to attend. This is an opportunity to practice speaking English, learn more about the language, and understand our culture and community.
English conversation groups are held Tuesdays from 6-7 pm and Thursdays from 1-2 pm. These meetings are currently being held virtually via Zoom.
We are looking for a lead to facilitate this group as well as assistants to help out.
Volunteers are vital to making fundraising events successful. These events are fun, and the tasks are simple! Scrabble bee is held on a Tuesday evening in October. Team Trivia is held on a Tuesday and Thursday in March.
This opportunity would involve working in our office 1-2 hours each week performing office tasks such as filing, preparing mailings, and helping staff where needed.
