Review for Readwest Inc, Rio Rancho, NM, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

ReadWest teaches adults to Read, Write and Speak English. We have both English and non-English speaking students. Volunteer tutors devote 2-3 hours each week working one-on-one with their student. All tutoring is "learner-centered". Tutors work with their students to achieve goals each student sets for themselves. I have served as an English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) tutor and as a Board Member and President of the Board of Directors of this fine organization. Volunteers are always welcome and needed. Training is provided. All donations are welcome.

Review for Readwest Inc, Rio Rancho, NM, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

ReadWest is a Literacy organizatiion in Rio Rancho, NM whose volunteers help adults learn to read, write and speak English. More than 1 in 5 Adults read at or below a 5th grade level. They can't fill out a job application, or read a perscription label or help their children with homework. The cycle of illiteracy puts a tremendous strain on our community resources and keeps families in poverty. Recently one of our students was denied a dishwashing job because she didn't have a GED. Another student who came to us after graduating HIgh School told us he could not even read his Diploma. Our volunteers change lives. The ripple effect within the family and the community of Adults learning to read and write English is profound. We help Adults get better jobs, and become contributing members of the community. Come join us. Your rewards will be immense.
