Help Teach An Adult to Read. Become a Volunteer Literacy Tutor.

(SAPULPA, OK – October 6, 2022) Adult literacy volunteers are needed to help Creek County area adults improve reading, writing and basic math skills. 

  • Twenty percent of adults in Creek County 18 to 24 years old do not have a high school diploma.
  • Ten percent of adults in Creek County 25 years of age and older do not have a high school diploma.
  • Twelve percent of Oklahoma adults – more than 400,000 – are functionally illiterate.

Creek County Literacy Program is a non-profit organization that trains adults to become volunteer literacy tutors, and then matches those tutors with adult learners. To become a tutor, individuals must attend Creek County Literacy Program’s free one-day Tutor Training workshop.
