Workshop Leader Training


Registration for our national workshop leader training is open! 


Leadership Workshop is for those who have committed to training local church volunteers to serve in one of the three areas of literacy: English as a Second Language, Tutoring Children and Youth, or Adult Reading and Writing.

Volunteers must have at least one year of experience in the selected ministry. Exceptions may be made for the Adult Reading and Writing and Tutoring Children and Youth training tracks if the applicant has education experience. Participants will have assignments to turn in before the training and additional assignments during the training.

All applicants must receive the approval of the person in their state who has the responsibility for literacy ministries (compassion ministries). Ask for the state code before applying.
