START OF THE JOURNEY
It’s All About The Student.
With very unique strengths, each student describes the
journey of their dreams. We then position ourselves and
our volunteers to support them in reaching their goals.
GOAL SETTING & PLANNING
Each Student Plans a Path.
A learning plan is put in place to map short-
and long-term objectives. This individualized
plan is based on the student’s goals, like reading
to their children, earning a GED, or obtaining a job.
Every Student Has a Unique Starting Point.
Formal and informal assessments help the student see
their progress and help keep us accountable for meeting
our promise to ensure success.
Best Practices Rule.
Literacy research and our own experience guides instruction
and the training of tutors to ensure that students receive
diverse learning opportunities related to their specific
goals and learning needs. One size does not fit all.
Support Along the Journey.
We recognize the many roles each of our students have
as adults. We support them uniquely with access to
transportation, child care, and food, with the help of our
many community partners.
Every Step Forward Counts.
We celebrate the successes of our students and
tutors, knowing that each individual has their
own unique journey to take.
