Mission Statement

Project Literacy is a library-based volunteer organization offering free, confidential, one-on-one tutoring to English-speaking people, age 18 and over, who are lacking in sufficient reading and writing skills to manage adequately in their home, work, and community lives. Project Literacy was created in response to national and local concern about adult illiteracy and assumes that adult learners want to improve their reading and writing skills so they may live and function more comfortably.

Description

To be an online volunteer literacy tutor with Project Literacy you must:

  • - Be 18 years or older and have a high school degree
  • - Complete our free tutor orientation and both training session
  • - Commit to at least 6 months of tutoring
  • - Tutor an adult learner for minimum of 2 hours per week
  • - Complete fingerprinting/background check

We hold online volunteer literacy tutor trainings year-round. To see when our next online training is, please fill out our volunteer inquiry form here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/KC596CN
