Your love of math can make a huge difference in someone's life! Newton Reads has several adults almost ready to take their GED exam, BUT.....while they have sufficient reading and writing skills, they struggle with the math concepts required to pass the test. They need YOUR help to coach them to confidence in problem-solving.
GED prep sessions are scheduled twice a week, at different locations around Newton County, in the morning, afternoon, and evening. Basic orientation to adult tutoring is provided, but successful tutors need just three qualities: be reliable, have respect for the adult who wishes to learn, and have the ability to build a relationship.

Hands On Newton's Vision : Every Newton County citizen is able to participate in meaningful volunteer service according to each one’s talents and interests to build a better community. Hands On Newton's Mission : Hands On Newton engages and empowers people of all ages in volunteer service through partnerships with local organizations and visionaries.
Hands On Newton (HON) was established in 2007 as a program of the Newton County Community Partnership-A Family Connection Collaborative (NCCP) to foster volunteer service and civic engagement that address issues resulting from Newton County’s sudden and rapid population growth. Our choice to use the Hands On model ensures effective volunteer management.
HON has diversified and expanded Newton County’s volunteer workforce through one-time and ongoing service projects and service to other nonprofits. Volunteers participate individually, with their families, or with a group; HON actively collaborates with other community organizations and for-profits to create large-scale or long-term projects such as community gardens.
