My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Literacy Partners, Inc., New York, NY, USA
I have been volunteering with Literacy Partners (LPI) as a tutor for 5 years. I teach a 3-hour class every week; I determine my own curriculum and lesson plans with help from LPI. LPI excels at providing a free, supportive environment for adult students to learn literacy and life skills, and eventually work up to obtaining their GED. The staff turnover is unfortunately high, due to LPI's inability to pay their center coordinators a competitive salary. (which is one of the reasons they need more funding.) This can lead to a lack of cohesion and general direction for tutors shaping their class curriculum.
