Give back to your community!

Help an adult become more independent and self-confident by teaching them how to read.

The Washington Irving and Memorial Branch libraries seek volunteer tutors for their one-on-one adult literacy program. These branches are located in the Arlington Heights and Mid-City/ Wilshire neighborhoods, respectively, and serve culturally diverse communities consisting of both native-born and foreign-born patrons.

No prior experience is necessary- just a willingness to help! All tutors and students are interviewed and assessed to create a positive match. Tutors are provided free training and teaching materials and are asked to meet with their student for a minimum of 50 hours in the course of 6-9 months.
