Project READ in Redwood City has scheduled a number of dates in the coming months to train community volunteers to become tutors for local adult and youth learners, with the first training date set for Thursday, Jan. 18.

See the flyer below for more of this year’s training schedule.

Tutors must complete 15 hours of training prior to being matched with a learner. All training sessions are held from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Main Library, 1044 Middlefield Road.

“Tutoring schedules for tutor/student pairs are individualized, with pairs meeting at a mutually acceptable time in the Project READ Family Literacy Instructional Center, at home, or other community-based sites, typically three hours per week,” according to Project READ.

Last year, the Redwood City program provided tutoring for more than 700 adults, some incarcerated. Some learners were parents wanting to read to their children. Trained community tutors provided one-on-one tutoring to about 350 K-12 students in 2017. Project READ programs served over 700 low-income youth in the community.
