At the Tri-Community Adult Learning and Literacy Association (Tri-CALA), volunteer tutors work one-on-one with adult learners to build basic reading, writing, math, or English language skills. They meet once a week for up to 2 hours at the local library.
Volunteer tutors are provided with six (6) hours of initial training, regular in-service workshops and on-going support from the Literacy Coordinator. Join our collaborative learning community!

Help to publish the Learner to Learner newsletter
Learners have started their own newsletter packed full of learner thoughts, musings and stories. It is written, edited and published by learners. This is a small circulation newsletter intended to showcase the work of learners within our community.
Support Tutor Training
All of the one-on-one learning at Tri-CALA is facilitated by volunteer tutors. To ensure our tutors are equipped with the knowledge and skills to facilitate adult learning we work hard to provide on-going quality training workshops.
