Program Description


Serve your community by volunteering as an Adult Literacy tutor at the Santa Barbara Public Library!

One-on-one tutors are trained and then matched with an adult English Language Learner or adult English speaker to achieve literacy, educational, and work-related goals. Tutors meet with Learners once a week for a 60-minute session at the Library or a community location for tutoring.

You will be supported with introductory training, follow-up support, and learning materials, as well as ongoing volunteer get-togethers and appreciation events!


Participants in this event may be photographed by Library staff. These photos may be used in promotional or educational publications, including in print, social media, and presentations. Please see staff if you do not consent to having your photo taken. Staff will obtain individual, signed photo releases of photographs that contain only an individual as opposed to a group.
