Washtenaw Literacy provides an essential service to the learners it serves - free tutoring for adults in reading, writing, and/or speaking English. As a tutor, I have seen first hand how much difference it makes in someone's life to become more independent through improved reading skills. Washtenaw Literacy also provides a great experience for volunteers. There are many ways to help - I have tutored one-on-one, worked with small groups, mentored other tutors, and helped at programs. The training for tutors is thorough and practical, and there are many opportunities to continue to learn more through updated workshops. The staff are very professional, and they have helped me find different ways to volunteer when I needed to change my schedule. I have always felt that my time and contributions have been valued by Washtenaw Literacy.
