Your Talents Make the Difference

Our successful program relies on the skills of our tutors as well as on the determination of our students.  You do not need teaching experience to be a tutor; we provide training.  With your help, our students are able to reach their goals of a better job and a brighter future for their families.  In addition to our tutors, we also welcome volunteers for administrative and event-related tasks.

“I feel like sometimes I’m getting more out of it than the students.  They are so grateful to you for tutoring, and even if you don’t know something, they don’t care.  You learn together.”

—Julie Larsen, Seeds of Literacy tutor since 1997
