Teach Someone to Read...Change a Life! Literacy is the key to independence, self-sufficiency and pride. Help empower someone by providing them with the tools needed to get back on track. 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 New Tutor Orientation and Training course AND attend 2 live, interactive Zoom sessions. You can fill out a Literacy Plus application here: https://bit.ly/LitPlusTraining

Literacy Tutor Qualifications:
Tutors must be 18 or older, speak English clearly, and have good reading and writing skills. You do not need a teaching background to be a tutor.
