ST. CHARLES – Literacy Volunteers Fox Valley needs volunteers who can help adults read, write, understand and speak English better. There are about 50 adults waiting to learn. Free tutor training workshops are scheduled for January and February. The January workshop will meet from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays, Jan. 14 and 16. The February workshop will meet from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays, Feb. 4, 6, 11 and 13. Both sessions will meet at the St. Charles Public Library, 1 S. Sixth Ave., St. Charles.

Volunteers who complete a workshop will be matched with one adult learner and meet for one hour each week in public locations, such as local libraries. Volunteers do not need to know a second language or have a background in education to help.
