Change Someone’s Future

Bridge the language gap by tutoring an adult 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’ll join a family of over 400 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 critical work - and why it matters so much in DuPage County - come to a new volunteer meet & greet. 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, and change a life, one conversation at a time.

Sign up for a meet & greet with Literacy DuPage to learn more about becoming a tutor. You can sign up through Volunteer Match, our website (www.literacydupage.org), by phone (630.942.5210) or email (info@literacydupage.org). We look forward to meeting you!

Can’t make it? We ask you to register for these sessions so we can be sure we are staffed and stocked to provide every single participant with all the information you need. Of course, we understand things come up. If you can’t make your originally scheduled session, please email (info@literacydupage.org) to reschedule.
