About

By creating a supportive and vibrant adult learning community, Write to Read at the Alameda County Library provides a safe environment for reading and writing practice where individuals take risks and grow to make positive changes in their lives and communities. Volunteer tutors work one-to-one with an adult learner twice a week for 2-3 hours. Tutors are matched with a learner according to tutor availability and skills. Tutors work on learning goals determined by the learners. All prospective tutors participate in trainings, roundtable discussions, and in-service workshops to support your tutoring skills and develop a community of practice. How to Volunteer:

  • Call us at 510-745-1480 to receive an application by mail or email, OR
  • Visit http://guides.aclibrary.org/literacy under Become a Volunteer to download an application form.
  • Return the application by mail to the address listed on application, or return it via email to this posting's contact.
  • After receiving confirmation that your application has been accepted, come to a tutor orientation to find out more on December 6th, 2017. You will receive orientation details after completing the application process.
