Can you offer another Manatee County adult an hour a week to help them them to read, write, or speak English?

*over 36 million adults in the U.S. can't read, write, or do basic math over a 3rd-grade level.
*low literacy costs the U.S. over $225 billion in non-productivity in the workforce, crime, and loss of tax revenue.
*kids with low literate parents have a 72% chance of being at the lowest reading levels themselves - putting them at greater risk for poor grades and higher drop-out rates.
*43% of adults with the lowest levels live in poverty.
*75% of state prison inmates did not complete high school.
*one in every five residents of Manatee county is considered to be low literate.
That's bad news.

Here's the Good News!

We are looking for some great folks to help us improve adult literacy skills in Manatee County by providing FREE literacy classes.

When you help adults reach their educational goals, you help their families-and our community-grow stronger. Adults throughout Manatee County want and need to learn to read and write better or learn English as a second language. You can help them gain the basic literacy skills they need to succeed as workers, parents, and community citizens.

*You don't need to speak another language or have teaching experience.
*We will train you and support you throughout the process.
*We are currently doing virtual classes so you can teach out of the comfort of your own home
*You can tutor virtually or in-person
