Mission Statement

The Nevada County Community Library Read Up! Adult Literacy Program's mission is to help adults build their reading and writing skills through free, confidential, one-on-one tutoring.

Description

The program pairs adult tutors to adult learners who want to improve skills and achieve goals that may include voting for the first time, reading aloud to their children, or finding employment. With over 30 million adults nationwide struggling with everyday basic life tasks, Read Up! makes it easy and comfortable to get help.

NOTE: At this time, we are looking for adult literacy tutors to tutor an adult over web conferencing, such as Zoom or Google Meet. Our pre-service tutor training is also conducted virtually.

REQUIREMENTS

If you answer yes to all the questions below, we would love to have you join us:

  • Do you read, write and speak English well?
  • Are you 18 years of age or older?
  • Are you available virtually 2 to 3 hours per week?
  • Are you patient and flexible?
  • Are you a good communicator and a good listener?
  • Do you want to make a difference in an adult's life?
