We are always in need of new volunteers age 19 and older and we are eager to have you join us. With locations throughout San Diego County, there is most likely a Center in need of your assistance.  We provide FREE training by certified ESL professors from local colleges.

  • Trainings are on two consecutive Saturday sessions and both must be attended  
  • You will receive a training manual at no charge
  • Training sessions are offered 3 times per year at varying locations throughout the county 
  • Upon completion, you will receive a certificate allowing you to work as a Laubach Literacy tutor at any of our sites in San Diego County
  • A background check is performed (at no charge to you) before any tutor can work with students
