Enrich your own life by changing a studentís

Join a hundred people in the East Bay who are working to change the lives of their neighbors.

A motherís reading skill is the greatest determinant of her childrenís future academic success, outweighing other factors, such as neighborhood and family income.

Tutors meet with their students at libraries, coffeehouses and other public spaces. They use a highly customized learning curriculum designed to meet each studentís individual needs.

SHARE YOUR GIFT OF LEARNING
No prior teaching experience is required to become a volunteer tutor with us. Most tutors spend a minimum of two hours per week tutoring their student. We ask that prospective tutors plan to commit to at least 9-12 months of tutoring.

This year, our volunteers served nearly 100 students, delivering over 3,000 hours of instruction. Students need hundreds of hours more to meet their goals. Please volunteer today. Click REGISTER in the text below for our current training schedule.

ďI feel certain I am getting more pleasure from this than my students are.Ē
Ms. J.R. Bristol
