How different would your life be if you could not read well?
1 in 6 adults in Richmond go through life with low-literacy. That's enough to fill the Siegel Center 4.5 times. By 2018, 63% of jobs will require education above a high school diploma. The READ Center's mission is to help adults with low-level literacy develop reading and communication skills so they can fulfill their roles as citizens, workers, and family members, and improve their quality of life.
You have the power to make a difference in the life of someone in your community by becoming a literacy tutor. The READ Center provides classes and one-to-one tutoring, and we having an ongoing need for volunteers willing to tutor our students in reading, writing, and basic math. As a volunteer tutor, you'll receive ongoing support and training opportunities, and you'll join a welcoming community of volunteers and teachers willing to share their knowledge and passion for making a difference.
