South Bay Literacy Council
September 27, 2011

The South Bay Literacy Council teaches English to adults. The Council has three programs: Literacy for English Speakers, English as a Second Language, and Computer Aided Literacy. All services are free and the Council has no paid staff.

I have been a member of the Council for over 10 years. I have served in a variety of positions. The most satisfying moments are when a student has an "aha" moment, and the black marks on the paper or screen become words and sentences with meaning.
