How to Volunteer:

There are thousands of adults in Cambria County who cannot read well enough to:

  • Follow simple directions
  • Fill out application forms
  • Read road signs
  • Understand bank statements
  • Follow directions on medicine bottles
  • Read labels on food products
  • Read a newspaper
  • Order from a menu

You can help! You don’t need any special skills or background to become a volunteer tutor. No previous teaching experience is required. All it takes is an hour a week and a real desire to help someone else. The Literacy Council provides tutors with the manuals and workbooks to help an adult learn to read.
