How to Become a Volunteer Tutor
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Literacy Volunteers of Santa Fe! We hope you will be able to join the dedicated group of people who work to improve literacy in the Santa Fe area. We have many students waiting for tutors at this time. Your knowledge of basic literacy skills, our training, and a commitment to tutor two to three hours each week for a period of nine to twelve months are all that are required to get started.
As a volunteer tutor in our program, you have a choice of two specialties: the Basic Literacy (BL) program and the English as a Second Language (ESL) program. All tutors are carefully interviewed, trained, and matched with students. They also receive ongoing support from LVSF staff and opportunities to improve their tutoring skills through workshops and in-service trainings.
