Project Literacy Seeks Volunteers to Help People Learn English

Print More

Project Literacy at the Watertown Free Public Library is seeking volunteers for its well-established (30 + years) and successful one-on-one learner-tutor match program.  The only requirements to volunteer are:

A desire to help welcome and integrate English language learners and to assist with their English skills, attend the training sessions, and complete a Volunteer Application (available online at the Watertown Library site under Project Literacy or we will send one). No experience in teaching or tutoring is needed to work with our learners. We provide tutors with training over the course of 5 evening sessions. The next training series will begin on Wednesday, March 2 from 6-9 p.m. at the Watertown Library.

For more information, please contact Jacky van Leeuwen, Project Literacy Coordinator of Volunteers, or Jeri Bayer, Project Literacy Program Director, at or 617-924-8797.
