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 1985, Literacy Plus has helped over 4,500 adult learners improve their reading, writing and conversational skills. As a result, they became citizens, earned driver’s licenses, obtained their GED degrees, and voted for the first time. Their increased skills resulted in higher self-esteem, better jobs, and the ability to read to their children and help them with homework.
If you have a couple of hours a week and want to help, become a volunteer tutor. A few hours a week 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.
