Our first volunteer training class in our new office!

Friends of Literacy welcomes volunteers from throughout the community. 

FOL volunteers tutor our adult students, work as classroom aides, help with office tasks, assist at special events, and serve on committees. Tutors are carefully paired with students, based on subject area knowledge, learning style, and availability. Studies show that students who work one-on-one with a tutor are more likely to advance in study and will increase educational levels at a quicker pace than those who do not have the benefit of individual tutoring.

Last year, 77 volunteers devoted 4,709 hours to assisting FOL students both in and out of the classroom.

Please read our Volunteer FAQs for more information.
