Volunteer with Literacy Network

Volunteers are essential to our work.

Each semester over 200 volunteer tutors meet every week, one-on-one, with adults needing their help with reading, writing, speaking English, basic computer skills, or GED prep. Training and lesson plans are provided! Our three semesters are:

Summer: May-August Fall: September-December Spring: January-May

Volunteer Tutors are required to:

  • Be 18+ years old, as all of our students are adults
  • Complete Orientation & Training before tutoring begins
  • Be reliable, patient, and kind
  • Speak, read, and write English fluently (all ESL tutoring is done in English.)
  • Have daily access to email, as we communicate with tutors via email
  • Reliably get to their tutoring site *on time* every week, and stay for the entire session
  • Attend their assigned 2-hr tutoring session every week for an entire semester, with no more than two absences (excluding holidays)
