Giving Back To Your Community

Are you looking for a rewarding way to volunteer in your community while helping an adult improve their life? Volunteering at the Upland Public Library’s Adult Literacy Program is a wonderful way to offer service to your city. The Adult Literacy Program provides free, private, one-on-one tutoring for adults seeking assistance in improving reading and writing skills. After an initial interview, the adult learner is matched with a volunteer-tutor and they meet once or twice a week at the Upland Public Library. Adult learners set their own goals based on their needs. Here are some of the areas where our specially trained tutors can help: 

•            Tutoring for the GED or citizenship test.
•            Reading and writing improvement
•            Comprehension and spelling improvement
