2020.01 – Reading Connections Looking for Volunteers

Thousands of people in Guilford County are struggling with literacy, and a local organization is trying to help.

Reading Connections has had its doors open in Guilford County since 1990. Right now in Guilford County, the organization says one in five adults lack the literacy to fill out a job application or read a children’s book.

“So one in five adults struggles in this area, and we like to think about it as the Greensboro Coliseum complex three times over, so that’s a really great need. And we certainly need volunteer tutors to help us so we can serve our community even better,” Karen Evans said. Evans is the volunteer coordinator and adult literacy instructor at Reading Connections. Click here to see the story on Fox 8 News.
