Description

By creating a supportive and vibrant adult learning community, Write to Read at the Alameda County Library provides a safe environment for reading and writing practice where individuals take risks and grow to make positive changes in their lives and communities.

 

Volunteer tutors work one-to-one with an adult learner twice a week for 2-4 hours. Tutors are matched with a learner according to tutor availability and skills. Tutors work on learning goals determined by the learners. All prospective tutors participate in trainings, roundtable discussions, and in-service workshops to support your tutoring skills and develop a community of practice.No previous experience required!

 

Thank you for your interest in helping adults achieve their literacy goals!
