LEAP is a free program sponsored by the Richmond Public Library in which tutors and learners work one-on-one or in small groups. LEAP's purpose is to help adults develop the skills and confidence they need to achieve their individual goals.

Who is Involved

  • Volunteer Tutors: You can help someone else learn to read, write, develop computer skills, and learn math. All you need is sensitivity and patience.
  • Learners: You must be 16 years old or older and want to improve basic reading, writing, or math skills.
  • Donors: Please feel free to make a tax-deductible donation.

When & Where

Learners and tutors may sign up at any time. Orientation for new learners is held upon entering the program at the LEAP office. Call the LEAP office to sign up at 510-307-8084.

The Learning Center

LEAP's Learning Center has a fine collection of computer programs, educational games, audiotapes, CD-ROM, and other alternative learning materials. There is also an in-house library for new readers and their tutors.
