How can YOU help the Literacy Council of St. Petersburg?
One of the best ways you can help the Literacy Council of St. Petersburg is by referring students. Letting adults know that we’re here and ready to help is a challenge. They may not be able to read the fliers we distribute and they may be embarrassed to ask for help.
You can let them know they can call us at 727-521-1117. All learners go through an assessment to determine their individual needs. These are done by a trained volunteer and normally last about two hours. After the assessment, we will match the learner with a volunteer tutor. Tutoring sessions take place in a public area such as a library, community room, or other public setting that is mutually agreed upon by the tutor and the student.
