Are you interested in teaching someone to read? Do you know an adult who wants to learn to read?

What does the adult literacy program do?
For tutors-
We train volunteer tutors in methods of reading instruction to assist their students.  Literacy Program staff match tutors and students.

For literacy students--
We provide free, basic literacy instruction to adult learners through confidential one-to-one study sessions that are geared to what the student wants to learn.
