Our Volunteer Tutors

We are not looking for any particular educational background in prospective volunteers, but it is important that they be flexible, patient, caring individuals who believe they have as much to learn as to teach.

We also ask that prospective volunteers not seek to promote any political or religious platform within the jail.

We ask that those interested in becoming volunteer jail tutors participate in a screening interview to qualify.

The Alameda County Sheriff’s Department will conduct a security review for all volunteers working in the jails. Volunteers will also be required to attend a security orientation at the Alameda County Jail – dates TBA.
