How Project Literacy Works

You choose your own schedule and Project Literacy matches you with a trained volunteer tutor. You and your tutor will meet one-on-one every week for 2 hours. Your tutor can help you with your literacy goals. Literacy is more than just reading books -- together you and your tutor can prepare for tests, apply for jobs, write emails, practice communication, and more.
