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

Rating: 5 stars  

The Newport Beach Literacy Program provides untold benefits to learners and tutors alike. The resources available at the Newport Beach Public Library to both groups is invaluable. Both the director and her assistant are incredibly helpful. The director brings her wide-ranging experience to the program, providing insights into our tutor - learner relationships as well as instantly being able to provide the right resource for any teaching challenges I face .
Over the years I have found that the value of the literacy program is very far-reaching. In our introduction to literacy we learned that incarcerated individuals have a high rate of illiteracy. I was gratified to learn recently that one of my former learners wants to help those incarcerated folk when she retires by virtue of the fact that she herself benefited so greatly from the literacy program.
