Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
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:
Tuesday, January 15, 2:00-3:00 pm OR 6:00-7:00 pm at the Santa Clara County Headquarters in Campbell*** Saturday, January 26, 12:30 pm -5:30 pm pm at the Santa Clara County Headquarters in Campbell
