NEW START provides free one-to-one tutoring and small group instruction for adults who want help learning or improving basic skills in reading, writing, and math or for those learning English as a Second Language. Tutors and students meet at community based sites and public libraries throughout lower New Castle County.
NEW START was founded in 1985 through the efforts of the Corbit-Calloway Memorial Library, Delaware City Library, and Appoquinimink Library. It is a non-profit educational corporation dedicated to helping adults in lower New Castle County to better their lives and their communities by improving their reading, writing, math and problem-solving skills. The main office is located at the Corbit-Calloway Memorial Library. There is a learning center at the Child Inc. building in Sparrow Run. The program is funded through the State of Delaware Department of Education, corporate and individual contributions, and in-kind services of local libraries and churches. NEW START is an affiliate of ProLiteracy America, the largest volunteer-based literacy provider in the United States. It is one of many family programs sponsored by the Corbit-Calloway Memorial Library. We welcome students and volunteers who wish to participate regardless of race, color, national origin, gender, age, or disabling condition.
