This is to help spread the word that Literacy Volunteers of Essex/Franklin Counties will host an outreach night entitled "Community Awareness" at the Ticonderoga Area Chamber office on Tuesday, March 26, 2013 from 4:00 - 6:00 PM.
"This event will raise awareness of adult literacy education in our communities and across the nation," stated Maria Burke - Director of Literacy Volunteers. "Come find out what types of programs we offer, who we serve, and how you can turn a page in your neighbor's life by increasing their reading skills."
Literacy Volunteers of Essex/Franklin Counties recognizes the importance of providing skills training, employment opportunities, and resources for those currently seeking employment in the Ticonderoga Area.
"Many of those searching for work also lack the basic literacy skills to be successfully employed and self-sufficient. By participating in the Workforce Training and Education with the Ti- Alliance, Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce, CVTEC, the North Country Workforce Investment Board, OneWorkSource and many other community partners, Literacy Volunteers can support low-literacy learners by providing a trained volunteer tutor who will help them improve academically," shared Maria Burke.
Light refreshments will be available for all those in attendance. Literacy Volunteers will also have free giveaways. Chamber members, the business community and Ticonderoga Area community members are all welcome to attend this outreach event.
The Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce office is located at 94 Montcalm Street in Ticonderoga.
