Adult Literacy Volunteer Orientation

Teach an adult to read. You'll be amazed at what you learn!

Volunteer tutors with Read Santa Clara, the adult literacy program of the Santa Clara City Library, provide one-to-one and small group instruction for adults who want to improve their basic reading, writing and/or math skills. 

Read Santa tutors are 18 years of age or older, read and write at a high school level or above and commit to tutoring adult learners for at least 2 hours a week for a minimum period of six months. Our tutors are patient, flexible and enthusiastic and provide learner-centered instruction.

The orientation will be held in the Sycamore Room (first floor) of the Central Park Library.  The orientation will provide an overview of the program and the opportunity to sign up for the next round of tutor training. Tutor training will be held at the Central Park Library on Saturday, 1/25 (10 am - 5 pm) and Sunday, 1/26 (1- 5 pm).

Attending an orientation is required to register for tutor training.

Please call (408) 615-2956 or email to sign up for an orientation.
