New pair

The Reading Program (RP), Santa Clara County Library’s Adult Literacy Program, is looking for 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 and learn without embarrassment.

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 3-hour training
  • Have a live scan/background check done (request done and fees paid by the library)
  • Be available to tutor 2 hours per week for at least 6 months (virtually or in-person)

*Registration is required


*For more information on upcoming orientation/training dates and locations, please check out our website: https://sccl.bibliocms.com/reading-program/tutor-orientation-and-tutor-training-schedule-and-locations/
