Adult Education in Peninsula
Project Read trains volunteer tutors who work one-on-one or in small groups teaching adults the reading and writing skills they need at the San Mateo library.
Volunteer tutors are needed to teach adults over the age of 16 how to read, write, use the computer, use the library and balance a checkbook. The adults are conversant in English and have literacy skills at or below high school level. They are motivated to learn because they want to improve their job situation, help their children with schoolwork or realize another benefit.
