Literacy Volunteers-HBPL Orientation


Thank you for your interest in Literacy Volunteers at Huntington Beach Public LIbrary. Every year we help hundreds of adults learn English, increase their ability to communicate using the written word, and improve their lives. This would not be possible without a team of dedicated volunteers, like you.

By completing this volunteer orientation online, you are taking your first step in becoming a literacy volunteer! You will learn about Literacy Volunteers-HBPL literacy services at both Central Library and Oak View Branch Library. You will learn about our history and mission, explore the commitment needed by literacy volunteers and learn what it is like working with an adult literacy learner.

Click on the links below to access each of the 4 modules in the Online Orientation. Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of each module to see the homework assignments and to submit your responses.  At the end of the orientation, you will be able to choose whether you would like to be a volunteer at Central, Oak View or either location and you will be able to register for our next tutor training workshops.
