Give the Gift of Reading

Hear from an adult learner how the literacy program has made a difference in her life.
The Adult Literacy Service trains volunteer tutors and matches each tutor with an adult who needs to improve reading and writing skills in order to reach their life goals. Imagine not being able to read a street sign, a restaurant menu, or a bill. Literacy tutors help adult learners master all of these goals and more.

In this video, Charlotte DeWitt talks about how important the literacy program is to her, what motivated her to ask for help with her reading, and gives advice to other adults who are thinking about improving their reading. Her tutor, Judy Colbert, talks about working with Charlotte, and her hopes for Charlotte’s future.
