Volunteer Tutors Needed!

Read Santa Clara needs volunteer tutors to help English speaking adults improve their reading, writing and Math skills. No prior teaching experience needed! Tutors meet with their learners two hours a week for a minimum period of six months. The literacy program offers 12.5 hours of tutor training. The first step to becoming a volunteer tutor is to attend an orientation. The next volunteer orientation will be at the Mission Library Family Reading Center, 1098 Lexington St, Santa Clara on Tuesday, January 29,6:30-8:00 p.m. Volunteers can then sign up for the next round of tutor training to be held on Saturdays, 9:30 a.m.- 3:30 p.m. on February 2 and 9 and March 15(9:30 a.m.- 12 noon.)
