How to volunteer with Redlands Adult Literacy Program
Redlands Daily Facts: 8.27.2016 by Diane Shimota, adult literacy coordinator at the A.K. Smiley Public Library in Redlands.
Do you have a passion for reading or writing? Would you like to help someone learn to read?
The Redlands Adult Literacy Program provides an opportunity for you to pursue your passion with a purpose by becoming an adult literacy tutor. Volunteer tutors are the foundation of the Adult Literacy Program because they donate their time to support learners in their quest for reading and writing competency.
Let me introduce you to a few of these wonderful volunteers.
Martha Kennedy, a retired teacher from Redlands High School, has tutored with the Redlands Adult Literacy Program for five years. Kennedy, with Sharon Regalado, leads the off-site adult literacy program at Lugonia Elementary School where six tutors meet one-on-one with their adult learners each week.
