Trained volunteer tutors work one-on-one with adult learners at no cost to the learner.
Programs that teach adults the importance of early literacy in children's lives: "Books For Babies", and "Rhymes That Bind".
Classroom courses and learning activities that address foundational learning needs in the community.
