To register for training, please attend a volunteer orientation session, where you will receive an overview of the program and all the required registration materials (including background check form). The training fee is $40, which helps defray the cost of training materials.

If you’ve already attended orientation and need help registering for training, please contact our office at 630.416.6699.

Here’s our tutor training schedule. When will you start?

After you’ve attended a Literacy DuPage volunteer orientation session, you’ll be eligible to register for our tutor training program. The full, 18-hour training program is a time commitment, but the instruction will give you all the tools and information you need to support a learner. And you’ll be in a cohort of other beginning tutors—just like you.

We conduct training regularly and throughout the county, so you can choose the training series that’s most convenient for you. Here’s our current schedule of training sessions:
