The Reading Program (RP), Santa Clara County Library’s Adult Literacy Program, is looking for volunteer tutors to work one-on-one with adult learners, who wish to improve their reading, writing, and speaking skills.

We work with dedicated, patient, flexible and sensitive volunteers who create a positive learning environment where adults can thrive, learn, and work towards their goals.

With improved literacy skills and the confidence that comes with them, adult learners are able to pursue a better life and a better future for themselves, their families and their communities.

To be part of our program, no prior experience is necessary. Before being matched with a learner, volunteers, who must be over 18 years-old, have to:
- attend a 1-hour orientation and a 5-hour training
- have a live scan/background check done (request done and fees paid by the library)
- be available to tutor two hours a week for at least six months.

Next Tutor Orientations & Trainings are scheduled for:

Wednesday, January 15
2:00-3:00 pm or 6:00-7:00 pm
