Info for New Teachers
Thank you for your interest in becoming a Volunteer with the Alaska Literacy Program!
We hope the information in this section will help you with your decision to become a volunteer with ALP. The commitment is substantial, as is the reward, when you help another person learn to read, write or speak English.
We ask participants to register at least three weeks prior to the start of the workshop. Please call us at 907-337-1981 to schedule a time when you can observe an ALP class. Following the class observation we will sign you up for a short interview with the staff member who will be responsible for matching you with a student or class.
The registration fee of $35 covers the cost of workshop materials. For those who want to take the training, but who will not be working with an ALP student, the cost is $350.
We look forward to working with you in our efforts to help others in the Anchorage community improve their literacy skills. Thank you again for choosing the Alaska Literacy Program as a place to contribute your time, interest and abilities.
