Events & Training for
Literacy Advance Volunteers


What's going on for Literacy Advance volunteers?

Please join us at one of these events or training sessions!

Remember, if you have ideas or requests for Volunteer Socials or for Tutor Workshops or Roundtables, please get in touch.


Facebook support group

Especially for you!

volunteer supportIf only there was an easy way to talk to other tutors about questions, ideas for using materials or introducing a new topic, or some other issue...

Well, there is one! There's a MAM Literacy Advance Tutor Support Group on Facebook. It was created with MAM Literacy Advance tutors especially in mind, and you can share ideas, answer other tutors' questions, get access to others' favorite resources and tutoring methods (along with sharing your own!), and much more.

First time you visit, you'll need to ask to join; after that you can come and go as you like and (depending on your Facebook settings) the group's posts will show up in your newsfeed.

Please take a moment to explore the page - there's a search box, so you can see if someone's already asked the very thing you're wondering about, and a place for files to be stored (which means lesson plan sharing just got easier; yippee!). Both of these can be found in the menu on the left.

Anyone can ask a question or start a discussion, and we encourage you to do that! We want this to be a supportive community space, and you're a big part of helping it be successful.

Questions about the Facebook support group? Get in touch: or 713.266.8777


Tutor Enrichment Workshops & Volunteer Training

enrichmentMAM Literacy Advance offers a regular schedule of Enrichment Workshops, designed to help volunteer tutors continue to improve their understanding of adult literacy, tutoring techniques, and much more. Enrichment Workshops are open to all MAM Literacy Advance volunteer tutors and you are encouraged to attend as often as you can!

If you see a topic you're interested in, but can't manage the day or time, please get in touch - if there's enough interest we'll do our best to arrange for a repeat session.


Keeping your Classroom Active

Keep your class refreshed, engaged, and ready to focus - by getting students up and moving while they learn! We’ll discuss research-proven best methods, and demonstrate activities you can integrate into your classroom. If you have a favorite game you’d like to present, please talk to Courtney.

When? Monday, February 18, 2019
What time? 6pm – 7:30pm
Where? MAM Literacy Advance Conference Room (Wilcrest)

It helps so much to know ahead of time who's coming!

So please RSVP by signing up on the Resource Room door, or by email:


If you have an enrichment topic you'd like to request, please talk to Courtney: 713.266.8777, or drop her a line.



roundtableIn addition to Enrichment Workshops, we like to gather tutors together for roundtables, where volunteer tutors can share what works for them, ask questions, and get guidance and ideas from one another.

Spend some time with your fellow volunteers, and learn something new!


Dates for Roundtables in 2019 will be posted soon.
