The Literacy Program serves adult learners who want to speak, read and write English. Our volunteers range from 20-somethings to retired professionals who want the satisfaction of teaching a motivated learner. Tutors meet with students one-on-one, or in small groups. Meetings are held once or twice a week. Students are motivated adult learners. The program introduces students and tutors, provides learning materials and meeting locations around the county. No teaching or foreign language experience required.

FEES: no fee for students; materials fee for volunteer tutors
Mission: Our mission is to provide English literacy skills to adults in our community, to assist them in achieving their full potential.
Volunteer Info: Join the Literacy Program for a free one-hour orientation to learn more about becoming a tutor to a motivated adult learner. No teaching or foreign language skills necessary, just a desire to be of service. We provide training and match you with the right student. Orientations are held at the Santa Cruz Volunteer Center.
