Project Read is the adult literacy program of the San Francisco Public Library. Since 1983, trained volunteer tutors have been working one-to-one with English-speaking adults seeking to improve their basic reading and writing skills.

Tutors are required to attend an orientation, complete twelve hours of basic tutor training and make a year-long commitment to tutoring. Our training equips tutors with a variety of teaching techniques and strategies designed to help adult learners improve their reading and writing skills. After training, we ask that our tutors meet with an adult learner for a one to two hour session once a week. Instructional materials, online software, and in-service workshops are available to support Project Read volunteers and their learners.
