Interested in becoming a tutor?

An estimated 400,000 adults in Orange County do not read or write well enough to meet their needs as workers, family members, and members of the community. We rely on volunteers like you to support these adult learners.  

To inquire about becoming a volunteer, email OC Read at readoc@occr.ocgov.com or call (714) 566-3070.
