Volunteer with us

Volunteer tutors meet with their learners in small groups or one-to-one once per week for one to two hours to help them reach their  goals.

Our Adult Education program helps adults in achieving their learning goals. Tutors work with learners improve their reading, math, and workplace skills. They also help learners prepare for the GED or other tests.

The English as a Second Language (ESL) program helps newcomers from around the world learn English, prepare for the U.S. citizenship exam, improve workplace skills, and learn about American culture. Tutors do not need to know a foreign language to be an ESL tutor.

To become a volunteer, please contact us at:      (850) 606-2644        literacy@leoncountyfl.gov


english as second language learner spotlight

A group of twelve learners in the LeRoy Collins Leon County Public Library's Adult Education program recently completed their CPR/AED certifications. Two learners, Chi and Rod, are pictured above. The course material was funded by a grant from Florida Blue and the Florida Literacy Coalition. The instructor, Lynda, donated her time to conduct the course. The learners will use the training to help our community, get jobs, and enroll in healthcare career courses. Great job!
