Adult Literacy: Become a Volunteer


Volunteer to be a tutor

Tutors work in the Adult Literacy Program empowering another adult by teaching basic reading, writing and functional literacy skills. Volunteers receive 7 hours of instruction in tutoring techniques and at the conclusion of the training are certified as Laubach Literacy tutors. Tutors and students meet twice a week for 1 to 1-1/2 hours per meeting at a time and location convenient for both tutor and student. The Library requires a minimum commitment of six months. To learn more about becoming a volunteer tutor, contact the literacy coordinator at one of the Library Literacy Centers.
