Mission Statement

To provide individualized reading, writing, and life skills tutoring that empowers adults in the Sioux Empire to reach their potential.

Description

Adult learners come to us with a wide range of reading skills--from those starting with learning the alphabet and basic phonics skills to those needing assistance with reading comprehension or pre-GED refreshers. Our staff works with the learners to find their reading level and matches tutors who can assist at that level. Tutoring sessions are held weekly to help learners succeed.

Reading and writing go hand-in-hand. Whether it is writing names, letter writing or learning to fill out a job application, tutors and learners work together to meet the goals set by the learner.

Having low literacy skills affects more than just reading a book or writing a letter. Adult learners build the self-confidence to take on new challenges such as filling out a job application, applying for benefits, navigating the internet, and accessing health care.
