What are your New Year’s resolutions for 2011?If you are thinking of volunteering and want to impact an adult’s life, consider becoming a Project Read-Menlo Park tutor.

The benefits of giving time to Project Read are evident each time we ask students, “Why are you here?”The responses are always heartfelt and genuine: “I want to be able to read to my child” or “I want to get my GED.”

Improving adult literacy transforms lives and our community:

  • Adults can get and keep good jobs with family sustaining wages
  • Businesses are able to increase productivity by employing better skilled workers
  • Parents, reading to their children, can raise the literacy level for the next generation

The next Tutor training begins Tuesday February 8th at 5:30 pm at the Menlo Park Library, 800 Alma Street.

If you cannot attend the next session, or would like to train earlier, we have video-taped and DVD training, as well as online training.

Please contact Project Read at 330-2525 or e-mail aabradshaw@menlopark.org for more information.
