Did you know that 1 in 5 adults in Guilford County, North Carolina, struggles with basic literacy skills? That's almost 80,000 adults! Literacy is a fundamental skill that affects all areas of a person's life. Not being able to read or write in English hinders one's ability to get a job, thrive in a career, seek proper healthcare, and engage with their community. Our goal at Reading Connections is to achieve 100% literacy in Guilford County: a community with a competitive workforce, a successful school system, and a thriving citizenry. We seek to empower our students as they work towards their personal literacy goals, recognizing that gains in adult literacy also transform our community by reducing poverty, adding to the workforce, and creating new leaders for Guilford County.

Our Adult Basic Education (ABE) program is looking for dedicated volunteers to tutor native English-speaking students one-on-one and in small groups to improve their reading, writing, speaking, listening, math, technology, and employability skills. All necessary training and resources are provided!


  • Access to Internet and computer or laptop
  • Comfortable using online meeting platforms like Zoom or willing to learn
  • Willing to commit to 2-4 hours a week for six months
  • Must complete a volunteer application form
  • Must attend one orientation session on Zoom
  • Must complete a one-hour, online, self-paced training that qualifies them to tutor one-on-one or in small groups, either virtually via Zoom or Google Meet.

If you're interested in making a life-long impact on adults seeking literacy instruction, this is the opportunity for you! Please email our Volunteer Coordinator, Quaneisha Payne, at for more information.
