"One language sets you in a corridor. Two languages open every door along the way."
Become an ESL tutor and make a positive and powerful difference in someone’s life. LEAP, the Richmond Library’s adult literacy program, provides vital English as a Second Language (ESL) services to adults who want to improve their reading and writing skills. The program matches volunteer tutors one-to-one with adult learners. The tutoring pairs focus on the student’s individual learning goal, and in the process, develop a relationship that makes a positive impact on the volunteer, the student, and the community.
As LEAP serves the community, we recognize that volunteers are one of our most vital and powerful resources. We are currently looking for ESL tutors . Volunteers must be 21 years of age and have a high school diploma (or equivalent). Because we do believe that success is based on building a relationship, we ask for a minimum of a 6-month commitment. In addition, successful volunteers are flexible, dedicated, and empathetic to the students. There are no special requirements to tutoring ESL, only a willingness to learn and to have fun.
