Mission Statement

Our VISION is a community where adults are empowered by literacy skills to be self-sufficient and to participate in the workforce, education and civic affairs.

Our MISSION is to provide needs-based instruction for adults in Harrisonburg and Rockingham County in literacy, English, and citizenship, using trained volunteers.

Description

Skyline Literacy provides one-on-one and small group tutoring to adults who are struggling with speaking, reading, and writing skills. In addition to poor literacy skills, most of Skyline's students are parents who have limited financial resources. Many work shift work in local businesses. Skyline customizes its services to fit students needs and schedules. Since Skyline uses volunteers to provide tutoring as well as many other tasks, students can receive services for a small registration fee of $25. Of course, no student is denied services for lack of payment. Skyline Literacy also provides citizenship instruction for eligible immigrants and refugees.
