How to Help
The Literacy Connection needs volunteers to tutor adults in Basic Literacy and English as a Second Language (ESL).
If you are at least 18 years old, can read, write and speak English, we invite you to become a volunteer tutor. No teaching experience or knowledge of a second language is required, and the time commitment is minimal.
Potential volunteers are asked to attend a one hour orientation. After that, they may decide whether to attend 11 hours of workshop training to be a tutor. Training is offered at different times and locations to be as accessible as possible. $25 is charged to cover materials. Administrative volunteers are also needed for mailings, graphic and web design, event planning, and other special projects.

The Literacy Connection relies on the generosity of foundations, organizations, and individuals in order to offer our programs at no cost to our students (after a one-time $10 testing fee). If you would like to contribute, please follow this link to learn more.
