The Volunteer Literacy Program recruits, trains, and matches volunteer tutors with adult students. The support and encouragement that tutors provide are key influences in the lives of students. Tutors help their communities by improving the lives of residents, one person at a time. Volunteers tutor when it’s convenient — morning, afternoon, or evening, and in an academic subject area they enjoy.
With just a few hours a week, you can help students improve their basic reading, writing, math, or English skills!
