Project Literacy provides free tutoring, instructional materials, and support services for English-speaking adults who are assessed at 8th grade or below in reading level and want to improve reading, writing, and life skills. Trained community volunteers are matched with learners as one-on-one tutors. Tutors also assist in small group instruction or conduct family literacy story times at outreach sites. Project Literacy has been serving the community for 27 years and this literacy resource serves over 200 learners yearly.
