English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Literacy Program


Become a Volunteer English Tutor

The Sharon Public Library has partnered with the Stoughton Public Library to offer an English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) adult literacy program. By volunteering your time to help adult learners improve their English reading, writing, speaking, and listening comprehension, you can significantly improve the quality of someone's life and  provide an important community service.

To be eligible to volunteer, you must:
  • Hold a high school diploma or GED
  • Be able to speak English clearly
  • Be sensitive to the struggles of adult learners
  • Commit to 1 orientation session and 18 hours of training
Volunteers are expected to meet with their students for 2 hours per week for one year.

If you meet these qualifications and are interested in becoming a tutor, you can learn more by
emailing stliteracy@ocln.org or calling (781) 232-9362; or, attend a New Volunteer Orientation session at the Canton Public Library Community Room, 786 Washington Street, Canton, MA. Upcoming sessions will take place on:
  • Thursday, September 14, 2017 from 6:00-7:30pm
  • Tuesday, December 5, 2017 from 11:00am-12:30pm
  • Wednesday, April 25, 2018 from 6:00-7:30pm
As the Stoughton Public Library has moved into a temporary location during renovation of the main building, all orientation and training sessions will be held at the Canton Public Library.
