Review for Anne Arundel County Literacy Council, Inc., Annapolis, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been working with the AA County Literacy Council, Inc. since I retired from federal service 15 months ago and I am happy to be part of this amazing group of volunteers! The very small staff could not be more supportive and responsive. The care and compassion displayed aby all involved is a wonderful model for helping others achieve their goals and live their best lives. I appreciated the initial training and the auxiliary training opportunities offered throughout the year. I work with GED students at Ordnance Road Correctional Center (ORCC) 1x per week and on a weekly basis I tutor an ESOL student.....it is rewarding to see the students t ORCC improve their life skills, earn their GEDs, and gain confidence in themselves. Metrics demonstrate that those who earn their GED do not return to jail as often! The woman I tutor in ESOL is amazing. She works so hard and continues to surpass her goals.....and best of all....I have a new friend!
