Review for Project Adult Literacy AKA Newport/Mesa ProLiteracy, Newport Beach, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a volunteer Tutor with the Newport Mesa Proliteracy for five years. It has enhanced my life in ways I could not have imagined. I have worked with several learners, and two have become U.S. Citizens. The program is very well run and provides a lot of support for both tutors and learners. There is a constant exchange of ideas and tips amongst the tutors in our quarterly Tutor Connections, and Cherall Weiss, the Literacy Coordinator, always makes our get-togethers informative and fun. Even if you have not been trained as an educator/teacher, I would highly recommend this program. It will enrich your life. There is no greater service to your community than giving the gift of literacy.

Review for Project Adult Literacy AKA Newport/Mesa ProLiteracy, Newport Beach, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

For those of us who can read and write, we cannot imagine how isolating it is to perform the simplest of daily tasks without those skills. I have been a volunteer with the Newport/Mesa Proliteracy Program since October 2014. It has, by far, been the most fulfilling experience of my adult life. Watching the pride of a parent able, for the first time, to read a teacher’s note about their child, or seeing the satisfaction of an adult who has read their first book, or witnessing someone who has prepared diligently for the U.S. Citizenship test, and then have the honor of attending their U.S. Citizenship Oath ceremony are beautiful, worthwhile and gratifying moments. The gift of literacy is priceless.

I love being a part of the Newport/Mesa Proliteracy organization. I have volunteered with this group for a year. Administrators, volunteers and learners are a joy to be around. Everyone is dedicated and committed to provide the gift of literacy, something we all too frequently take for granted. There is no greater joy than watching someone engage with their community once they have the confidence to communicate with those around them. This is a truly wonderful organization and I recommend it to everyone every chance I get!
