Library is Looking for Literacy Tutors
The San Benito County Free Library's Adult Literacy Program is searching for tutors to support, empower and encourage adult learners to improve their reading, writing, and speaking skills. No prior experience is required other than a desire to help others.
The Adult Literacy Program since January 2007 has offered free tutoring to any adult resident of San Benito County. Learners meet weekly with trained volunteer tutors for one-on-one instruction to obtain help with meeting personal and educational learning goals.
Volunteers should have knowledge of basic English spelling and grammar, must be 18 years of age, and willing to commit at least one-and-a-half hours per week for six months. We will provide training, materials and professional support staff for you and your learner. Choose to make a commitment to positive change today -- a learner is waiting for you to expand their world.
For more information on how you can make a difference in your community, contact Library Assistant Rosa Garcia at (831) 636-4107 ext. 20 or Betty Mason, literacy coordinator at ext. 18.
