Literacy Tutors in a Correctional Centre
Authors: Darlene George
This Volunteer Handbook has been compiled to provide volunteers with information that will help them perform their duties as a Literacy Tutor or Computer Mentor in a Newfoundland Correctional Facility.
Volunteers are a necessary part of educational programs in prisons. Their friendship and skills will have a positive influence on inmates, to help offenders work toward their successful reintegration into the community. Volunteer tutors and mentors serve as facilitators, to help inmates make connections to literacy resources.
This manual includes useful information such as: "What to Consider before making a Commitment," "Volunteering in a Correctional Setting," and "Literacy Statistics."
