Washtenaw Literacy does a great service to the people of Washtenaw County, Michigan. Not only do they help the many adults in the county who struggle to read at the level of a high-school graduate, they also help the many non-native speakers and their families who come here attracted by the excellent universities here. Volunteering for them is a pleasure. They provide outstanding training and support to volunteers. In fact they have the most supportive people of any organization I know -- with the possible exception of my family!

In doing some surfing I came across a startling statistic. 27000 (twenty seven thousand) people do not read or write at grade level. UM, EMU, WCC, MSU, WSU, etc... are all within an hour's driving distance. WL provides free service to anyone. Basic Literacy, GED prep, job applications, newspapers, and ordinary computer user skills are available. I signed up as a BL tutor. WL provides a fantastic volunteer support network of training, retraining, and information sharing. Tutors are assigned a mentor as a guide through the process of helping individuals. It is said that doing something for someone that they can never repay is the best deed. WL has given me the opportunity to prove the truth of that sentiment.
