OUR CORNERSTONE

LEARN MORE ABOUT LAB

The program has had many distinct outreach efforts over the past 53 years but has remained true to the basic tenet:  one – on – one tutoring in the public libraries across the county.  After they are assessed, adult learners meet with their tutor once a week for a minimum of 60 – 90 minutes.  All materials are provided at no cost to the student.

NEED TO KNOW

A LAB STUDENT

could be an international college graduate who needs to learn English in order to get a job in the United States. A LAB student might be a grandmother whose own children graduated from high school but she herself never learned to read: now she wants to learn to read to her grandchildren.  Our LAB student could be someone who had to drop out of school for whatever reason. Our LAB student could be a retired welding inspector, with a successful career, who never learned to read.

LAB VOLUNTEER TUTORS provide free individualized ONE-ON-ONE INSTRUCTION that focuses on the learner’s goals. Typical adults in our program struggle to read a menu, fill out a job application, or read a bedtime story to their children. Others left school before graduation and want to obtain their GED to improve employment opportunities. Many of our adult learners have families in which English was not the primary language spoken and now they want to improve their English skills.

" Being in this program my reading confidence went from a 0% to 100%. With my confidence I was able to advance at my job by taking a test which used to terrify me. Now I read to my nephews and I enjoy reading to myself. I feel good - no more hiding! "
