Volunteer for Adult Literacy

All of our tutors are volunteers. To become a tutor you must attend an orientation and a training workshop.

For more information, including orientation dates and times, call our office at (707) 544-2622 or email us at literacy@sonomalibrary.org.

The training and books are free. 

Take a look at our current Adult Literacy Newsletter, a monthly publication for volunteer tutors.

Both student and tutor will work together for a minimum of six months for two hours per week.

What qualifications do I need to become a tutor?

  • Tutors must be at least 18 years old, speak English and have a high school diploma or GED.
  • Previous tutoring experience is not required.  We provide training and ongoing support.
