Volunteer Literacy

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!

Tutoring information and requirements

  • Tutoring is currently face-to-face with masks or virtual via Zoom 
  • Free training is provided for volunteers
  • Teaching experience is not necessary
  • High school diploma or HSE (GED®) certificate is required

This project was made possible by a grant awarded by the Illinois State Library (ILS), a division of the Office of the Secretary of State, using state funds designed for literacy.
