Our Mission

Our mission is to help individuals in the region acquire and validate the literacy skills that they need to function more effectively in contemporary U.S. society. We want to equip and empower individuals who are otherwise unable to participate fully in our community.

Through trained volunteers, staff and the generosity of our many supporters we offer one-to-one tutoring focusing on reading, writing, speaking and understanding in English.

Our values:

  • student-centered philosophy
  • free instructional services
  • equal opportunity learning
  • volunteerism
  • accountability
  • integrity
  • effective stewardship of resources
