Forty million adults in
America have trouble reading. But with help, they can
learn. Volunteer tutors from Hayward Public Library's
Literacy Plus program are proving that every day.
Since 1986, Literacy Plus
has helped over 2,500 adults to read. As a result,
became citizens, earned driver's licenses and G.E.D.
degrees and voted for the first time. Their increased
in higher self-esteem, better jobs and the ability to
help their children succeed.
If you have a few free hours
a week and want to help, become a volunteer tutor.
It can change someone's life--and your life, too! Tutoring
sessions are once or twice a week and can take place
during the day, evening or weekend, depending on your availability.
The next free training is listed above, or see our calendar
lists for future training classes.
Tutors must be at least
18, read at the 12th grade level, write and spell correctly,
speak English clearly, and be able to participate fully
in the tutor training class.
