Meeting the Challenge of Literacy

Hear from an Adult Literacy student about how increasing his reading skills makes a difference in his life.
Imagine overseeing a business without being able to read. Or driving down a street and not being able to read the street signs. Literacy tutors help adult learners reach their goals in reading and writing, indispensable skills in today’s world.
