Save the Date: Upcoming Events for Community Partners & Tutors
This fall we are holding a Resource Fair & Recognition Event for our Tutors on Tuesday, September 21 and an Open House for our Community Partners on Wednesday, September 22 . This is a hands-on opportunity to learn more about our program, view on-line learning resources, and explore the suite of available printed resources (books, workbooks, and more …). More details coming soon.
We are pleased to share some of our adult leaner’s accomplishments so far this year. With the support of our skilled and dedicated volunteer tutors:
- 2 students received their GED
- 1 college student passed a required math class
- 1 ESL graduate student’s English proficiency improved to a level such that the student no longer needs support for writing a dissertation
- 1 student completed pre-GED level materials in three subjects and moved on to GED level studies, making significant progress toward the end goal of a GED
Congratulations to our adult learners and tutors for making life changing learning success happen.
