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. RP volunteers, who must be over 18 years-old, have to attend a 1-hour orientation, and a 5-hour training before being matched with a learner. We ask that volunteers be available to tutor two hours a week for at least six months.
Our next orientation and tutor training are scheduled for:
Wednesday, October 10, 2:00-3:00 pm OR 6:00-7:00 pm at the Gilroy Library
Saturday, October 20, 12:30 pm -5:30 pm pm at the Gilroy Library
*We can discuss other orientation options based on a case by case basis
For more information about our program, orientation/training dates and locations, please contact us at email@example.com (408) 262-1349 or check out our webpage https://www.sccl.org/Services/Reading-Program/Orientation
We look forward to hearing from you!
