Change a Life, Become a PAR Adult Literacy Tutor

Partners in Reading (PAR) of the San Jose Public Library matches trained volunteer tutors with English speaking adults who read or write below the high school level. PAR trains volunteers, who meet twice a week at a library with an adult who needs help reading and writing. Many adults struggle to use an ATM, write a check, and read to a child. You can help by becoming a volunteer tutor.

The next tutor orientation is on July 20, 2016. Training is on July 23 and July 30. All 3 sessions are required. Sign up here. For more information, please call (408) 808-2361. All volunteers must be at least 18 years old and complete fingerprinting.
