Change a Life! Teach an Adult to Read & Write!

Are you able to write a check, send an email, read a story to a child, or compose a short letter to a family member? Nearly 500,000 adults throughout San Diego County lack the skills to accomplish these basic tasks.

You can help! LEARN, the adult literacy program of the San Diego County Library, is seeking volunteer tutors to teach adults how to read and write at all 33 SDCL branches. Each LEARN tutor makes a commitment of working one-on-one with an adult learner 3 hours per week for 6 months.

Get involved, make a difference and change a life!
