Change a Life: Tutor an Adult Who Struggles with Reading and Writing
3 people are interested
Volunteer tutors work one-on-one with adults who struggle with basic reading and writing. Project Second Chance (PSC), Contra Costa County Library's adult literacy program, supplies learning materials, training, and ongoing support to tutors. After orientation and training, tutors are assigned a student. Tutors meet with their student twice a week for 90 min. each time, at a time and public place convenient to both people (typically the local library). Tutors volunteer approximately 4 to 6 hours per week (3 hours tutoring plus variable prep/travel). Mission Statement: Project Second Chance (PSC) provides free, confidential instruction in reading, writing and spelling to English-speaking adults with literacy skills below a 6th grade level. PSC recruits, trains and supports volunteer tutors, who work one-on-one with learners to help them achieve their individual literacy-related goals and empower them in their work and personal lives.
