The young lady told me that she was glad she finally asked for help and that her tutor does not make her feel dumb. She has been to two meetings with her tutor, but she feels good about herself and hopes she will be able to help her child do better in school than she did. If she couldn't go to tutoring in private I don't think she would have attempted to get help with her reading.

I have worked for Arkansas Literacy Council for 14 years, 12 as Executive Director. I cannot recall a time where I have seen amazing results from a new grassroots literacy council in such a short period of time - since July 2009. The council is supported with inkind rent, utilities/Internet, equipment, and bookkeeping services from Southern Arkansas University-Tech in Camden. The chancellor wanted to be personally involved because of so many high school graduates coming to college only to discover they do not have the reading and writing skills they need. The OCCLC Board members have come through with their promises to make contacts in their churches, civic organizations, and other contacts where volunteers can be recruited for tutoring - and potential students can be encouraged to come for help. We are concluding our grants process for FY 2011. We require each applicant to send two student or tutor success stories. Three were sent this year from OCCLC. Three students, all women, all mothers with eight children between them, and two of them single parents. I don't think these women - and many others - would have been reached without the full commitment of the OCCLC organization. The stories are here: http://www.arkansasliteracy.org/pages/StudentStories/OuachitaCalhounCounty.html
