Literacy is the key to independence, self-sufficiency and pride. Help empower someone by providing them with the tools needed to access all of life's possibilities. 1-2 hours a week can change someone's life - and your life, too. Literacy Plus, Hayward Public Library's adult literacy program, conducts a free, online training for new volunteer tutors three times per year.

Volunteers must complete an online Tutor Training course, attend the live Zoom orientation, and attend the in-person Tutor Training. You can fill out a Literacy Plus application here: https://bit.ly/LitPlusTraining
