Literacy Partners is a terrific organization that is reaching a group of people who have somehow gotten through school systems and life in general without developing basic reading and math skills. The students have made up for this skill deficit in remarkable ways. They have jobs and have become expert at moving ahead without these skills. Just imagine how far they can go once they learn to read and write at a higher level! The students are so appreciative of all that the tutors/teachers and Literacy Partners staff do for them. Literacy Partners is a very well run organization that makes the most of every asset at their disposal. The initial and on-going training has been great. I have participated in volunteer activities for most of my adult life and Literacy Partners is by far my best experience. In addition to feeling like I am making a big difference in the lives of the students, I truly believe in the program. I am so moved by the students and their initiative and desire to work hard and improve their lives.
