A learning community

What is the adult literacy program?
The Adult Literacy Program provides educational opportunities for adults who want to improve their literacy skills. Students develop their reading, writing and critical thinking skills through one-on-one tutoring sessions that will focus on individual needs.

Where are the classes held?
Our program offers in-person and virtual tutoring sessions.

Who are the students?
The adults in our program have varied educational experiences. Some learners received education in the United States; other students have learned English as a Second Language and need help in developing their skills.

Most of the students in our program are bilingual who are interested in using language and literacy more comfortably.

Who are the tutors?
Most of our tutors are community volunteers who are interested in helping others.
