Volunteer for Project Literacy
This form has been modified since it was saved. Please review all fields before submitting.
Project Literacy tutors are caring members of our community who provide an important service to adult learners. Our volunteer tutors are fluent in English and are willing to spend two hours a week with adult learners, most of whom are learning or improving their English communication skills.
We ask tutors to make a one-year commitment (allowing for typical life circumstances). There is a 4-session, 9-hour pre-service training. We typically have trainings every 3 to 4 months.
Please fill out and submit the following online Volunteer Application. Alternatively, you may print a paper application and drop off, mail, or email the completed application to:
c/o Watertown Free Public Library
123 Main Street
Watertown, MA 02472
