Our volunteer tutors attend a no-fee, 8 - 10 hour training that takes place over three evenings. Tutors learn about our mission and how to teach and motivate adult learners to read or to improve their reading skills, math skills, and/or improve their English-speaking skills.
Volunteer tutoring is done on a one-to-one basis in a public place—most often a community library in the town nearest the student. All services are free of charge to the student.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer tutor, you can submit the tutor training form on-line. If you would like more information about becoming a tutor, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We have several tutor trainings throughout the year. Please email us if you are interested in attending and we can reserve a space for you.
Volunteers are also needed to label books, help at events and fundraisers, and read to children. Please email us for information.
