The joy of learning!


To read the newspaper, understand a medicine label, write a letter, fill out an application, or read to a child - these are examples of common goals set by adult learners. Become a volunteer tutor and help someone realize their literacy goals and potential. No previous experience necessary. After completing training provided by Literacy Services, tutors are paired with an adult learner. Pairs typically meet at the local library once or twice a week for an hour to an hour and a half each meeting. The results are positively life-changing for an adult who has struggled. And above and beyond, you’ll be amazed what you learn along the way!
