ReadWest changes lives by providing no-cost one-on-one tutoring in English to residents of Sandoval and Bernalillo counties of Metro Albuqueruqe. ReadWest is the largest community based Literacy organization in New Mexico, with a 22 year history of helping adults learn to Read and Write English. Our wonderful tutors work each week with a student to help each one achieve thier personal goals, which range from helping thier children with homework, to improving their job prospects. 46% of New Mexicans read at below a 5th grade level, forcing them into poverty and low paying jobs. Improved Literacy helps famililes move off public assistance and empoweres every aspect of the family's life. Volunteer tutors and contributors are the life blood of this vital community organization. www.readwest.org
