I just finished training to be a literacy tutor through Project Read
, the adult literacy program of the SF Public Library.
The Library estimates that 80,000 San Francisco adults -- one in every five -- have some difficulty with basic reading and writing. Project Read provides free one-to-one tutoring, workshops, and ongoing instructional support to thousands of these adults.
The next round of tutor training classes starts soon, so call right now -- (415) 557-4388 -- to sign up.
If you don't live in San Francisco, you can find other programs
all over the Bay Area.
And of course, your donations
-- either through individual contributions, United Way drives, or your business donating its services -- are vital to the program's survival.
Who's with me?
