Tutoring Opportunities

Think you want to be a tutor? Our volunteers come from all walks of life, have different interests, and vary in age. Your patience and a couple hours each week can lead to a rewarding volunteer experience!

Before you get started you need to take our Tutor Training. Our training offers a foundation of skills and insights for working with your adult student. Training is offered in two formats so you can pick the one that best suits your learning style and schedule.

Tutors receive on-going support from our highly trained staff.  Support comes in the form of newsletters, in-services and training, assistance with lesson plan development, and on-going learner assessment.

Tutors are available for any and all programs we offer free of charge.

Requirements For Becoming a Tutor

  • Volunteer tutors are required to have a high school diploma (or its equivalent);

  • A desire to help another individual meet his/her literacy goals;

  • Pass a background check;

  • Complete the required tutor training sessions;

  • Volunteer 2 hours each week in one of our programs; and

  • Commit to approximately one year of service.

Some of our programs need a classroom assistant. As an assistant, you will complete an online mini-course and watch a learning disabilities video before placement.  Then you will help students under the direction of staff.

If you are interested in becoming a Volunteer Tutor or assistant, email us at
