Desperately Seeking Thirty-Two!

Thirty-two motivated students have been patiently waiting to be matched with tutors to improve their reading skills, build their vocabularies, practice purposeful conversations, and learn more about their communities. Thirty-two students want to share a children’s storybook with their toddlers, help their children with homework, and communicate better with their children’s teachers. Thirty-two waiting students want to be more independent and hope to feel more confident. Thirty-two people need you!
 
“When I first started tutoring, I did it for me, to not feel obsolete after retiring.  Now, it isn’t about me at all, but about these amazing adults who, for whatever reason did not have success or the opportunity to learn to read and write in English, but are taking time out of their adult lives, from work and family to learn now. I find myself bragging about them to my friends, sharing their success and progress and how much I respect the choice they’ve made to learn.”
Jocelyn, tutor

If you would like to learn more about volunteering for The Reading Program, please attend one of the upcoming orientations scheduled in Cupertino. Tutors are matched with students at their preferred SCCLD library, so this option is perfect for Campbell and Saratoga patrons as well.
