Are you looking for a an opportunity to make a positive difference in your community? Both new & native adult residents need help with English skills to participate fully in our society. Enjoy this meaningful and interesting volunteer job and give a priceless, life-changing gift to learners in our diverse population!

Our next tutor training & orientation will be held Saturday, May 5, 2018, from 1-4 p.m. at the Pleasanton Library. No advance preparation is necessary. Registration is appreciated but not required.

Pleasanton Library's Adult Literacy Program will train you to help adults improve their English skills. Volunteers serve as one-on-one or small group tutors, lead or help with weekly English Conversation Practice Groups, provide Citizenship Test preparation, or host Book Clubs for English Learners. Whether you have a little or a lot of time to give, there is an opportunity for you!

We welcome native English speakers and multi-lingual volunteers. Fluency in American English, patience, the ability to work with people from various backgrounds, and familiarity with American culture are equally important. Prior teaching or tutoring experience is not required.

Tutors meet with their students once weekly for 90 minutes; the library supplies tutoring materials at no cost to participants.
