Training Classes for Adult Literacy Tutors to Start

Contribute Your Skills to Help Another

Volunteer to make a difference by tutoring a local adult. The Santa Barbara Public Library System’s Adult Literacy Program seeks tutors to help adults with reading, writing, math, and English language skills.


The next training for volunteers begins Monday, March 11, at 10 a.m. The four-session course will meet Mondays and Tuesdays, March 11, 12, 18, and 19, from 10 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. The tutor training course will meet in the Townley Room at the Central Library, 40 E. Anapamu Street.

Free tutoring helps adult learners reach their goals, including improving job skills, studying for the GED test, or learning how to help their own children do homework. For the past 25 years, the Library’s literacy program has offered no-cost, one-to-one, flexibly scheduled tutoring at all library branches.

New volunteers must take nine hours of tutor training before being matched with a learner, and tutors are asked to make a six-month commitment to tutoring. To sign up for the training course, please call 805-564-5619 or contact literacy@sbplibrary.org. Turn your passion for learning into a positive step—and help someone who wants to learn something new!
