The work that these volunteers do expands exponentially when you consider how just teaching one person to read transmits to more and more people reading. And everyone knows what happens in a world where knowledge is spread freely!!! Thank you for doing such an invaluable job!!

I support Reading Works because one way to improve our educational system is to ensure that parents of school-age children have the skills needed to engage with their children and schools in the educational process. Parents who cannot read and write at a level above their children aren't able to support their child's learning, have trouble connecting with teachers regarding their child's education, and frequently miss out on crucial communications from the school.

Reading Works serves the community with a program that directly assists non-literate adults. One of the most fundamental and necessary skills required in our society today is literacy. So many of us take this skill for granted, yet the statistics on the number of adults unable to read and write are truly startling. I am impressed by the many dedicated tutors who work selflessly to teach reading and writing. I am equally impressed by the clients that work so hard to acquire these skills. It is a privilege to be part of something that can so profoundly impact the quality of a human being's life.
