L.A. Works and Points of Light are partnering with XPRIZE to unveil the first part of a 12-month adult literacy program designed as a free mobile app.  

The XPRIZE app is aiming to create unprecedented tech solutions for low literacy through removing barriers by improving access, increasing retention, and scaling to meet demand - anytime, anywhere - empowering the nearly 1 in 6 low literate adults living in the U.S. with the skills they need to improve their lives. Volunteers are needed to assist in recruiting participants, installing the app, and administering tests.

Invest in family literacy and give them the opportunity to thrive!

  • LEAD A TEAM- Manage and educate your team for the test/event. 
  • SIGN IN/OUT- Sign people in and out.
  • INTAKE- Welcome participants and download an app on their smart phone to determine if they are eligible to participate.
  • TEST- Administer the tests as a Test Officer.
  • RECRUIT- Inform potential attendees about the program.

Bilingual (Spanish) volunteers and those with a background in adult education are greatly needed.
