The City of Berkeley Health Officer has ordered all residents to shelter at home, leaving only to receive or provide essential services. All Libraries are closed.

Volunteer tutors work one-to-one with adult literacy students, helping them improve their basic reading and writing skills, and achieve their learning goals. Volunteers gain valuable teaching experience, develop a powerful connection with another lifelong learner, and become part of a community of learning in Berkeley.
