Adult Literacy Trio
Help adults learn to read!

"No ser capaz de escribir y leer es como estar ciego. Ahora que puedo leer y escribir, me siento libre e independiente." - - Estudiante Dinora Guerra

California es el hogar de 565,375 adultos de habla hispana que no pueden leer y escribir en ningún idioma. Aunque el dominio limitado del inglés puede aislar a familias inmigrantes y prevenirlas de integrarse a su comunidad, aquellos que no cuentan con conocimientos de alfabetización nativa están aún más aislados, especialmente los adultos que hablan un idioma indígena como Quiche, Canjobal o Zapoteca y están aprendiendo español como segundo lenguaje.

Si usted puede hablar, leer y escribir español puede cambiar una vida ofreciéndose como voluntario. Los voluntarios dan tutoría uno-a-uno de dos a tres horas a la semana y reciben materiales y entrenamiento gratuito. Pedimos un compromiso mínimo de 6 meses.

About Los Angeles Public Library


630 W. 5th Street, Los Angeles, CA 90071, US

Mission Statement

The Los Angeles Public Library provides free and easy access to information, ideas, books and technology that enrich, educate and empower every individual in our city's diverse communities.


The Los Angeles Public Library is largest public research institution west of the Mississippi.

With more than 70 branch libraries and Central Library subject departments serving millions of Angelenos on a yearly basis, our programs are supported by thousands of volunteers in a variety of capacities. Whether providing one on one literacy tutoring, cutting out craft supplies for story time activities, helping serve summer lunch at the library, or serving as a Friend of the Library, all volunteers play a role in the work of LAPL.

If you would like to volunteer, but don't see a listing that matches your interests, please contact your local branch or the Volunteer Engagement Office. Opportunities and needs vary by location and fluctuate throughout the year.

Please note that the minimum age for volunteers is 14 (with the exception of 11-13-year-olds joining Teen Councils), minimum time commitments are required for most opportunities, adult volunteers working with children will be fingerprinted, and LAPL does not accept court-mandated community service.
