John Wood Community College enriches lives through learning by providing accessible educational opportunities and services at an exceptional value.
The Adult Volunteer Literacy Program at John Wood Community College exists to provide a crucial connection to bridge the gap between low-skilled adults and their journeys to success. The program pairs adult learners 17 years or older, not enrolled in school, and who function below a ninth grade skill in math, reading, or English language, with a trained volunteer tutor. After an initial intake, that includes assessment, interest survey and goal setting, tutors and adult learners meet weekly to increase reading, math, or English language skills.
