Our Augustine Literacy Project® program trains and supports volunteer tutors who provide free, one-to-one
instruction in reading, writing and spelling to low-income children. Tutors receive training in a systematic, multi-
sensory, phone(c approach to reading and written language and will prepare and deliver 4 practice lessons with
the guidance of an experienced tutor/coach.
An Augustine tutor agrees to meet with her/his student for 45-60 minutes twice weekly, usually during the
school day for at least 60 lessons. Tutors meet monthly to add to their knowledge and skills, exchange ideas, and offer support. All on-going support and training sessions are included in the initial training fee.
The cost of the initial training is $250 for those who agree to tutor a qualified Augustine student for 60+
sessions. This fee covers the cost of materials that become the property of the trainee, 5-day (40 hour) training
with pre-course assignments, mentoring, and a background check required by the Episcopal Diocese of North
Carolina. Scholarship funds are available to qualified candidates. If you wish to participate in the training,
