Our mission is to change the lives of adults with low literacy skills by providing tutoring, educational technology, and classes that effectively increase their English reading, writing, and speaking skills at no cost to the adult learners.
Literacy Volunteers trains volunteers, interviews adults who request services, matches tutors with adult students, provides textbooks and other training materials, and offers ongoing support for tutors and students. Tutoring services are free to adult learners.
If you can read, write, speak English, and have the ability to be flexible and patient with an adult learner, YOU can become a trained tutor. Prior teaching experience or knowledge of another language is NOT required.
Our training prepares volunteers to help foreign-born adults learn English as a Second Language (ESL) and help English-speaking adults improve their reading skills (Basic Adult Literacy).
