Are you looking for ways to give back to the community?

The Reading Program, Santa Clara County Library District’s adult literacy program, is looking for tutors to work one-on-one with adult learners who wish to improve their reading, writing, and communication skills.

We work with dedicated, patient, flexible, and sensitive volunteers who create a positive learning environment where adults in our community 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.

What are the requirements to volunteer?

  • Adults (age 18 and up)
  • Be patient, adaptable, and dedicated
  • Be able to read and write in English at a high school level
  • Attend orientation and training
  • Clear online background check (fees covered by SCCLD)
  • Dedicate at least 2 hours a week to your learner for at least 6 months (choose your own schedule)
  • Prepare learner-centered lessons (tutoring materials and resources will be provided)
