The written word changes people. It changes a nation.
We read, we discover, learn, and improve. Literacy changes lives by improving job prospects, health outcomes, civic participation, and the way that parents view their own children’s education.
Thanks to your donations of time, talents, and treasure, students such as Winston and Marc and others (See “Why We Do What We Do”) are improving their job prospects and achieving their literacy goals. You have made free, individualized, one-one-one literacy tutoring possible for a total of 183 adults in Anne Arundel County this past year, which includes 101 Basic Literacy, 29 GED/GED prep, and 53 ESOL students. Tutors donated 8,500 volunteer hours to their students and learning occurred at all 15 county libraries and at over a dozen county agencies. You are making a difference!
