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)
Next Tutor Orientations* are scheduled for:
Wednesday, September 2, 10:00-11:00am or 1:00-2:00 pm via Zoom
Wednesday, October 7, 2:00-3:00 pm or 6:00-7:00 pm via Zoom
