About

Looking for a rewarding volunteer opportunity? Become an Adult Basic Literacy tutor! Help an adult improve their reading and writing skills. Training, study materials, and on-going support provided. Tutors make a volunteer commitment of two hours per week with their adult student. Basic Literacy students are English-speaking adults who read at or below the 6 th grade level. Student goals might include: filling out a job application, understanding prescription medication labels, getting a driver’s license, reading to children or grandchildren or any other reading-related purpose. Tutors meet with their student at any public place (library, coffee shop, senior center, etc.) at a time convenient to them. We currently have pairs meeting in Abiquiu, Chama, Espanola, and Los Alamos.
