Basic Literacy Tutor Training

with Annie Sargent

Calendar Feb 2, 2017 at 9 am, runs for 4 weeks

The written word bombards us daily. We're expected to read information constantly. For about 45% of our population, reading proficiently is difficult and sometimes impossible. Teaching an adult to read does not require an education degree. It does require patience and the desire to help transform an adult's life through literacy. The 14-hour training certification provides teaching strategies, adult learning models, information on learning disabilities and lesson planning. No class 02/23/16; makeup date (if needed) 03/09/16.  Contribution of $35 helps defray the cost of materials.  Scholarships available.  Class will meet in the Ellsworth City Hall Auditorium, 2nd Floor, 1 City Hall Plaza, Ellsworth.

How to Write an Effective Press Release for Businesses and Nonprofits

$39

with Judy Mathewson

Calendar Feb 3, 2017 at 10 am, runs for 2 weeks

Do your efforts to get the word out about something new that is happening at your business fall short? Or have you ever wondered why some nonprofits garner more positive news coverage for their efforts than others? A well-written press release can draw the right kind of attention to your new product line, your new initiative or your exciting new hire. In this two-part workshop, you’ll learn how to write up your news in a way that will make the decision makers at blogs, newspapers, radio stations and TV news desks want to publish it. Bring a bit of news about your business or nonprofit that you want to disseminate, and leave with a press release plus an action plan for getting it noticed by the right people at the right outlets. This workshop is limited to five students to allow for ample individual attention.  This class meets on 02/03/17 and 02/17/17 (no class on 02/10/17).
