Programs Overview
 

Reading Connections is a nonprofit adult literacy agency that provides free and confidential services that help to improve basic literacy skills, self-esteem, community service and leadership skills among adult readers who live or work in

Guilford County, NC

Our approach to teaching is student-centered which means: 

  • Students are at the heart of instruction.
  • Students use life experience and knowledge of spoken English when learning to read and write.
  • Materials are tied to students' goals, interests, and immediate real life needs.
  • Students are seen as equal partners in the learning process.
  • Students are matched one-on-one with tutors or in small groups based on their needs, goals, and individual reading level.  Reading Connections serves a wide range of students – from those who are non-literate to those who are working towards their GED® (high school equivalency). 

Why do adults come to Reading Connections?  There are many reasons, including:

  • To gain independence
  • To improve job skills to get a new or a better job
  • To read to their children or grandchildren
  • To learn to speak, read and write the English language
  • To prepare for the GED® test
  • To read the Bible or other spiritual materials better

Reading Connections students are learning to do things that many literate adults take for granted, including:

  • Getting a driver's license
  • Casting a vote in an election
  • Helping children with homework
  • Applying for a job
