Adult Literacy Awareness Month

Adult Literacy Awareness Month
September Spotlight
on SCLLN Literacy Programs

Monterey Park Library - LAMP

Since 1984, Literacy for All of Monterey Park (LAMP) has been a leader in adult and family literacy programs. We improve human lives by providing high-quality, learner-centered literacy services to the San Gabriel Valley at no cost. Trained volunteers in one-to-one, small group, and classroom settings provide tutoring and instruction. Our volunteer teachers and tutors are highly skilled and successful, as they have helped 717 adults become United States citizens and as of June 30, 2008 they have helped 5,776 children and adults improve their reading and writing skills.

Some of our partners and supporters have included: Alhambra Unified School District, Starbucks, the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation, Regal Entertainment/Edwards Cinema, Hollywood Video, Baskin-Robbins, The Law Offices of Eng and Nishimura, Mexican American Opportunity Foundation, Monterey Park Rotary, Soroptomist of Monterey Park/Rosemead, Monterey Park Lions, LAMP Optimist, Monterey Park Chamber of Commerce, Kaiser Permanente, California State University Los Angeles, Clipper’s Foundation and AmeriCorps.

MONROVIA PUBLIC LIBRARY LITERACY SERVICES

The Monrovia Public Library provides free one-on-one tutoring for adults with literacy challenges. All program participants are referred to instructional materials such as books, software and activities, as well as training, on-going support, and evaluation. Being a literacy tutor requires patience and compassion and less than 2 hours per week.

A bridge between the literate and non-literate world, providing one-to-one tutoring, computer and video instruction, as well as a positive, nurturing environment for those who wish to cross the bridge into literacy. For our students, we provide a path to a better life, to ending the family cycles of illiteracy, and to building self esteem, awareness, and knowledge.
