English Conversation Group Leaders - Sept. 6 -Dec. 13

English Conversation Group Leaders are needed on Saturdays from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. until Dec. 13 at the Monroe County Public Library. Conversation groups help Spanish speaking parents improve their English and support their children in school. Groups are held in conjunction with Escuelita Para Todos (A School for All) which provides bilingual education for Latino children. Leaders plan and facilitate English reading, writing, and conversation activities. Volunteers must be familiar with American customs, idioms, and vocabulary, and be able to lead two groups per month. Knowledge of Spanish is helpful, but not required. Patience and flexibility are key. VITAL staff provide training and mentoring. Lesson plans are developed collaboratively. Many teaching materials and resources are available. Minimum age is 18. Please contact Bethany Terry at (812) 349-3173 or (
