Here is an excellent volunteer opportunity: get to know someone with a different set of challenges, help this person with a skill he may use anytime, anywhere and even improve his self-image, and in the process gain a sense of satisfaction for yourself. It begins this Thursday, April 8, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Octavia Fields Branch Library, which is hosting a training session for volunteer literacy tutors. It continues with weekly tutoring sessions at any branch library. You can arrange these according to your schedule. Ask at the library (281-446-3377) or contact Steve Zach at 713-749-9035 for more information.
