Training in Action
"The most important and transformational educational opportunity I had in my life was when I went through a 21-hour, four-part free training to be a volunteer tutor. It changed my life...and led to a very rich, varied, and fulfilling career in adult education."
--Jeff Fantine, State Director of Adult Education and Family Literacy, Maine
