Volunteer Matching

After the sad news of Volunteer Tulsa's dissolution, potential volunteers, and organizations in need of volunteers, do still have some resources for finding each other.  Volunteer Match  is a national database with fun and friendly searches, dozens of interest categories,  mapping functions, and virtual volunteer opportunites as well.

I'm interested in helping someone learn to read. How do I apply to become a literacy tutor at the library?

Recent statistics indicate that approximately 1 in 6 adults in Oklahoma perform at the most basic or below basic literacy levels. The Ruth G. Hardman Adult Literacy Service, located at 29th & Harvard, promotes literacy across the lifespan through emergent and family literacy outreach initiatives and adult basic and English language instruction.
