LEAP Literacy for Every Adult Project

graduation class

Make a powerful positive difference in another person’s life. Volunteers are needed to tutor, teach, and mentor adult students. LEAP, the Richmond Public Library’s adult literacy program, provides vital educational services to adults who want to improve their reading and writing skills. The program matches volunteer tutors one-to-one with adult learners. Together the volunteer and the student build a relationship that is based on a shared desire to reach educational goals.

As LEAP serves the community, we recognize that volunteers are one of our most vital and powerful resources. We are currently looking for volunteers to perform a variety of roles including as one-to-one tutors, teaching assistants, and computer coaches. LEAP has both daytime and evening opportunities available. Volunteers must be 21 years of age and have a high school diploma (or equivalent). LEAP asks for a minimum of a 6-month commitment. In addition, successful volunteers are flexible, dedicated, and empathetic to the students.

Volunteering for LEAP is a great way to learn new skills, affect positive change, and have fun.

Please fill out our online application here:, or send an email to to learn about our next orientation.

When the community works together to support one another, we all win. #partnership

Mission Statement

The Public Library/LEAP is dedicated to free and equal access to information, knowledge, independent lifelong learning, cultural enrichment, and the joys of reading for our diverse community. We strive to be the driving force behind the achievement of universal literacy in Richmond, California.


LEAP, formed in 1984, is one of the first library literacy programs in the state of California. As a free program sponsored by the Richmond Public Library, LEAP depends on a small dedicated staff and many hard-working volunteers to meet the needs of the residents. LEAP is a program committed to developing literacy for the multitude of uses in daily life. At LEAP we offer tutoring and small group instruction to insure that all adults can be self-sufficient and critical consumers of ideas and information.

Sign up to volunteer online here or come into our office Monday - Thursday 9:00 - 4:30.
