Become a Tutor

Literacy DuPage is proud to have nearly 400 volunteers in DuPage County helping to change lives and impact future generations through literacy. Volunteers come from many different backgrounds and experiences.

How to join our growing family of volunteers:


  • Step 1. Register for and attend a volunteer orientation.
  • Step 2. Read, complete, sign, and return all materials distributed at the orientation, including the background check form.
  • Step 3. Register for and attend an upcoming six-class training session that works with your schedule.
  • Step 4. Send in payment of $25 (which helps partially defray the cost of materials) prior to attending training.

To learn more about becoming a tutor, please read our Frequently Asked Questions (PDF). Please call us at 630.416.6699 with any questions, and we will be happy to assist you.
