The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Yolo Reads provides free tutoring to adults who want to improve their reading and writing skills.
One in six Yolo County residents cannot read and write sufficiently to carry out day-to-day activities at work and home. Adult literacy tutors provide one-on-one tutoring to an adult in their community. Tutors assist adult learners to meet their personal reading and writing goals such as reading to their children, completing a written driver license exam, creating a resume or acquiring new computer skills.
We currently have adults in Esparto waiting for a tutor.
Training, support and materials are provided by Yolo Reads staff.
Yolo Reads is a free program of the Yolo County Library.
