If You Can Read, You Can Help!
- Call the state literacy hotline at 1-800-237-5113 or e-mail us firstname.lastname@example.org and we will provide you with information on volunteer literacy programs in your area.
- Volunteers work with a tutor coordinator who will ask you what subject you would like to tutor, the type of student you would like to work with, and the times that you are available. With this information he or she will arrange for you to meet with an adult learner who has already been tested.
- The location for the tutoring can be just about anywhere including a community college, local library, business, or community center. Programs generally do not support in-home tutoring.
- Students are adults of all ages. Family literacy programs are also sometimes in need of tutors to work with children as well.
- Most literacy organizations have a number of volunteer needs which may include proving administrative support, fundraising, interviewing students and serving on a board of directors.
