To empower adults through learner based tutoring in reading, writing, math and technology and to promote literacy in our communities.
To achieve our mission, we like to partner with organizations in “Collaborative Learning Partnerships” ( CLPs) to share strengths, specific skills, resources and data to provide literacy programming to groups of adults, meeting individual learners where they are and providing continuity of learning, both in person and remotely. Through the process, partners gain mutual benefit from learning together about how best to serve the needs of our stakeholders/communities, and adult learners gain confidence to see themselves as members of literacy communities, able to both share ideas and ask questions.
We create opportunities for learner-centered discussion experiences around selected texts, to develop knowledge as a community of literacy, involving trained tutors as co-facilitators. The texts are provided at no cost to registrants.
