Adults with low-level literacy skills face many challenges each day. Simple tasks such as paying bills, applying for employment, or helping their children with their homework can be frightening. Often feeling ashamed and alone, the adults typically try to hide their lack of skills even from close friends and family.
By helping these adults improve their literacy skills, the Volusia Literacy Council can bring about amazing changes in their quality of life. New opportunities open up for them as parents, employees, and members of their communities.
To provide adults education tutoring services to individuals and families performing literacy skills below the ninth grade level in the areas of reading, writing, math, ESL [English as a Second Language] and workplace skills.
Our volunteer-based program can serve about 200-250 students per year. Our volunteer tutors are high-school graduates, and nearly all have some level of continued education, including master’s and doctoral degrees. We offer training, supervision and provide them with up-to-date materials. These tutors do not get paid, and they work – collectively – more than 12,000 hours per year. If we paid them by market value, their salaries alone would be more than $250,000. One dedicated tutor who has been with us since 1987 calculates that he has helped 57 students over the years. Another long-time tutor estimates that she has helped more than 60 students.
