The Hayward Public Library - Literacy Plus Program is looking for volunteers to help tutor adults in our ESL program. Classes are held Monday-Thursday from 5-7 PM. The students are a pleasure to work with--motivated, good-humored, and grateful for your help. The experience is not only fun, but deeply gratifying as you see students make strides in their English proficiency.
Each volunteer tutor designs his or her own lessons; we provide books, supplementary materials and supplies. For aides, no experience is necessary.
