Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Sonoma County Library


Become a volunteer Adult Literacy tutor to help an adult in your community achieve their learning and language goals. Adults are currently waiting to be matched with a tutor at Sonoma County Libraries. We have a specific need for tutors in: Rohnert Park, Sonoma, Healdsburg, & Windsor right now. And we are also hoping to add new tutors who are available in the evenings and on Saturdays. If you can tutor 2-3hrs a week at any of these library locations, please let us know, so we can contact you and sign you up for our Fall 2023 orientation and training dates - which take place online. All training and resources are FREE for volunteer tutors and adult learners.

Our next orientation will be held online: SEPTEMBER 25th at 9:00 am - 10:30 am. Contact us to find our more and to pre-register for this orientation-training date. Email: or call 707-544-2622.

We are looking for empathetic volunteers who want to help an adult learner improve their reading, writing & English language skills in order to achieve their program goals. No formal teaching experience necessary. Free training and materials are provided by the program. Flexible hours and library locations throughout the county are possible once orientation on Zoom and online training is completed during the 4-6 weeks that follow the orientation date (nine self-paced online training modules).

What We Do: Sonoma County Library Adult Literacy Programs provide FREE training, support and materials to volunteer tutors, who meet one-to-one with an adult learner at their local Sonoma County library two-three hours a week. Right now, we have adult students waiting for a tutor at: Sonoma Valley, Rohnert Park, Windsor, Healdsburg library locations. Tutors volunteer 2-3hrs a week to meet with an adult learner and file monthly hours/instruction reports online.

The next NEW tutor orientation training will be held online via Zoom: Monday, September 25th at 9:00 am - 10:30 am. Tutoring takes place in-person at your local library branch after orientation and training is complete and schedules have been mutually agreed upon with a potential learning partner.

Contact us today and we will help you register for our September 25th Zoom orientation-training date or the next ones scheduled in early 2024.
