ORGANIZATION: Reading Connections, Inc

RC Comma

Did you know that 1 in 5 adults in Guilford County, North Carolina, struggles with basic literacy skills? That's almost 80,000 adults! Reading Connections exists to support these individuals in reaching their literacy goals. Not being able to read and/or write in English greatly hinders one's ability to get a job, thrive in a career, seek proper healthcare, and engage with their community. Reading Connections exists to support these individuals in reaching their literacy goals. We're looking for dedicated volunteers to tutor students one-on-one and in small groups to improve their reading, writing, speaking, listening, math, technology, and employability skills.

Our ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) program is seeking tutors to support non-native English speakers. Training and resources are provided for all tutors. All tutoring sessions are conducted virtually.


  • Access to Internet and computer or laptop
  • Comfortable using online meeting platforms like Zoom, or willing to learn
  • 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

Time Commitment : Tutors are asked to meet with their student(s) for 2-4 hours each week for at least six months


  • Enthusiastic about reading, writing, and the English language
  • Patient with students

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.
