Teach an Adult to Read & Write! Volunteer as a Literacy Tutor!

Who needs help?

An average 20% of adults locally struggle with reading and writing. It can be a source of embarrassment for adults, who are often unwilling to ask for help.
  • Many have learning disabilities;
  • Others received insufficient individual instruction in school or at home;
  • Others are immigrants seeking to learn English.
What is LEARN?

LEARN is the adult literacy program of the San Diego County Library.

Our mission is to help adults improve reading and writing skills to achieve their full potential as community members, family members, workers, and life-long learners; to teach non-English speakers ESL (English as a Second Language) skills; to tailor services to individual needs, with confidentiality; to foster understanding and use of public libraries; to educate communities on the importance of literacy.
 
How can I help?
 
By becoming a volunteer literacy tutor, you will empower an adult by teaching them vital skills which will help them achieve their full potential as community members, family members, workers, and life-long learners.
 
What are the requirements?
 
  • Be at least 18 years old, with the equivalent of a high school diploma;
  • Pass the County of San Diego's Volunteer Background Check;
  • Successfully complete LEARN's Tutor Training program;
  • Commit to a minimum of six months as a tutor;
  • Meet with a learner for 1-1/2 hours twice a week at a County Library branch;
