Thank you for committing to transforming the life of an adult through the power of reading.

Without the dedication of hundreds of volunteers, the Los Angeles Public Library could not empower over 1,000 adults every year through literacy. Approximately 1 million people in Los Angeles need help now. All 21 Los Angeles Public Library Literacy Centers have adults waiting to learn.

In this course you will learn useful tips and techniques for working with adult learners. The course will engage you using interesting and interactive elements and is written with the knowledge that most volunteers do not have experience teaching or tutoring.

During the course you will be supported by other tutor trainees as well as the Adult Literacy Program staff. If you need assistance during your training, please contact tutorsupport@lapl.org , speak with the Literacy Coordinator at the center closest to you, or post your question in the online forum. Once you complete the course, a staff member will contact you.
