Tutors Needed for Adult Learners in Your Community

Are you a high school graduate?  College graduate?  That means you had at least 12 years of education that made it possible for you to learn what was essential in reading, writing, science, social studies, and math.  You got that done when you were younger, likely had fewer responsibilities and more free time.  Imagine doing it now!

Layout 3Over 80,000 adults in Westchester County aged 25+ do not have a high school degree.  Those that are looking to complete their GED could use your help.

Westchester Library System’s GEDConnect! is a tutoring program operating at libraries around Westchester County. We are looking for volunteers to assist adult students.  We provide the training and support.  You provide the time and encouragement to help adult learners meet their goals.

If you can dedicate 2-3 hours per week, contact Lisa Kahn at 914 231 3264 orlkahn@wlsmail.org.
