Thanks so much for your interest in changing lives through literacy education. As a tutor you will help students achieve success in their daily lives and deepen their community connections.
Join us for an Orientation
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.
All orientations have been postponed until further notice.

If you attended an orientation and are ready to commit to volunteering with us we invite you to complete the online application. On behalf of our staff and volunteers we look forward to working with you.

We give our volunteer tutors the resources they need to enrich the lives of their students. After you have completed your orientation we provide an extensive 14 hour training and on-going support with monthly workshops. View our training materials, meet our trainers, and view our workshop list.
