Review for Skyline Literacy, Harrisonburg, VA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I make my living as a writer, so literacy is something that's very important to me! I am also interested in local volunteerism and becoming more involved with people in the community who I may not otherwise interact with often. Volunteering with Skyline Literacy was a great way to combine those interests, and I've been glad to have done so over the past year and a half. I've taught English classes and citizenship classes for Skyline. The citizenship classes were particularly rewarding - it was a privilege to help people in the class who were very motivated to become citizens and be able to more fully participate in the civic life of this community that's become their home.
Skyline Literacy is working hard to meet the large need in and around Harrisonburg for language, literacy and citizenship classes, and I'm proud to play a small part in that.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give it enough funding to hire more staff. It's my impression that the current staff can barely keep up with the demand for Skyline's services.
