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 an effective group leader.
-- 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 lead a small, mixed group of native and non-native English-speakers. Topics range from basic reading and writing, American culture and history, to pronunciation and will be selected by you and our staff. No teaching or tutoring background is required. All volunteer classroom teachers receive free training and materials. We ask for 2 to 3 hours a week for a minimum of 2 months.
We'll work with your schedule.
