You do not need to know a foreign language or be a teacher to be a successful volunteer tutor. One of the most effective ways to support the literacy cause is to volunteer your time helping others acquire necessary skills we often take for granted. To learn more about tutoring opportunities with adults, call Literacy Services at 530-661-5986. We can answer any questions you have about the program and send you information to help you find a tutoring opportunity that is right for you.
