Our goal is to assist adults to reach their full potential by helping them improve their literacy skills, including reading, writing, math, computer, life skills, GED preparation, and English as a Second Language(ESL) We assess our learners and enroll them at our First Christian Church location on Mondays and Wednesdays from 9-5 pm. Our tutors receive a training session and updates. Our tutors meet twice a week for an hour and a half a session in private spaces provided by local libraries in Richland and Lexington counties in South Carolina. We work with a variety of learners, from beginning readers to ESOL learners, to GED seekers. In addition, we help intellectually-challenged adults gain practical life-skills.
