The READ Center

Reading and Education for Adult Development

The READ Center changes lives through adult literacy by providing classroom instruction, one-to-one tutoring, and educational resources to adults who need and want to improve reading, writing, basic math, and digital skills. When adults with low-level literacy develop basic reading, communication, math, and digital skills, they can better fulfill their roles as citizens, workers, and family members.

Reach One. Teach One.

You have the power to make a difference in the life of someone in your community by becoming an adult literacy tutor.
