You can help an adult or a child with basic literacy skills. We have adults who have struggles with reading and writing but haven't given up. We will train you, give you the materials, set you up to tutor in our building, and support you every step of the way. The same is true for those who wish to help a child at our facility. We also provide opportunities to tutor an adult in learning to speak English.
