Change someone's future.
Bridge the language gap by tutoring an adult in basic English! As a volunteer tutor, you will teach an adult to communicate so they can do what most of us take for granted: make doctor appointments, go grocery shopping, speak with their children’s teachers, and so many other essential everyday tasks.
As a Literacy DuPage tutor, you join a family of over 200 volunteers who work together to create lesson plans, share ideas, and forge friendships while strengthening our community’s ability to reach and embrace everyone. You’ll find yourself in a rewarding place: empowering adults with the life-changing benefits of literacy.
To learn how you can be part of this important work - and why it matters so much in DuPage County - come to a volunteer orientation session. We’ll explain what it takes to be a tutor (in short, no prior experience - just a genuine desire to help) and how we’ll prepare you to teach English, one conversation at a time.
Sign up for a meet and greet with Literacy DuPage staff to learn more about becoming a tutor! You can sign up through Volunteer Match, our website, by phone or email. We look forward to meeting you!
