Literacy Pair
Tutors and students often develop lasting friendships.

Did you know that nearly 1 million adults in Los Angeles face literacy or language barriers?

Join us to share your love of reading and:
-- Learn new skills! We provide all the training, materials, and support you'll need to be effective.
-- Meet lots of great people from different cultures and places.
-- Face challenges and learn how to overcome them.
-- Develop (or grow!) a passion for learning and teaching others.
-- Create real and meaningful change in your own community.
-- Gain great experience that can be applied in multiple job fields.

Volunteers are fundamental to the success of library literacy services. Without people like you we can't partner with adults to overcome literacy barriers and close skill gaps to create opportunity for individuals, their families, and the communities of Los Angeles.

Won't you join us?

You will answer questions from mostly non-native English-speakers covering basic reading, writing, grammar, spelling, punctuation, and pronunciation. No teaching or tutoring background is required. All volunteer walk-in tutors receive free training and materials. We ask for 2 to 3 hours a week for a minimum of 2 months.
