Literacy Volunteer Opportunities

The Riverside County Library System’s Literacy Services are made possible through the generous dedication and passion of our volunteer tutors. Our volunteer tutors provide an invaluable service to our communities in providing reading, writing, digital, and/or job assistance.

Volunteer support may include:

  • Tutoring adults one-on-one (in-person and/or online)
  • Leading small group classes
  • Program promotion in the community
  • And more!

Literacy volunteers must be 18 or older to work with adult learners. Teen volunteers may help with program prep. Volunteers must be interviewed AND complete the Literacy volunteer training.

Trainings are in the Spring (January & March) and Fall (September & October). One-on-one trainings can be made available but will be dependent on staff availability.

Part 1 of the New Literacy Volunteer Training is below - Please complete the New Tutor Training Part 1 Form HERE after watching the video.

Interested volunteers may contact Literacy at (951) 685-6901 for additional information as well.
