Duration: Multiple Days
First Day : Aug 9, 2017

Program Description: Volunteer for 2.5 hours a week (or more) with XPRIZE and help improve adult literacy in Los Angeles for many families.

Volunteer Role & Responsibilities: You can help adults looking to better their lives by volunteering for the roles below:


LEAD A TEAM- Manage and educate your team for the testing/event. 


TEST- Administering the tests as a Test Officer (includes a 1.5 hour training).

No experience is necessary, only a love of learning is required! Each volunteer is matched to a team lead position and meet to administer baseline tests at an adult school or public library. Volunteers will receive test certifications, meals (depending upon shift) and support from a dedicated Regional Coordinator.

Time Commitment: 3+ hours each week for a minimum of 3 shifts – day and time to be determined by your schedule. Volunteers must commit to entire shifts.

Requirements: Must register on and/or enrolled in RSVP. Completion of an application, two 45 minute online orientations (for testing officer role).

Parking & Transportation: Parking will be dependent upon your testing location; transportation needs to be provided by each volunteer.

Benefits: Our volunteers say that this experience is the highlight of their week. Having an opportunity to help a person learn to read and grow personally is very rewarding. You will be contributing to your community and meeting other volunteers.

* This project is managed and lead by our nonprofit partner. L.A. Works is a nonprofit, volunteer action center that creates and implements hands-on community service projects throughout the greater Los Angeles area. ​
