Most of us take reading and speaking English for granted. We read all day: newspapers, emails, texts, menus. We listen and speak to others with ease at work, at our children’s schools, and in our neighborhoods.
For Literacy New Jersey’s adult students, every word can be a struggle. Imagine being at the doctor’s office and not being able to read the forms or ask the doctor a question. How about the letter that just came home from your child’s teacher? The world can be so scary for our students.
Literacy New Jersey’s goal is to win this challenge. $10 buys one more hour of free tutoring for an adult student. Together we can buy the next 4,000 hours of instruction.
In 4,000 hours:
- Maria will get her GED.
- Our student Scott will read a book just for fun.
- As a new United States citizen, Hsieh will learn about the candidates and vote in her first presidential election.
Your donation will help our students change their lives. Thank you!
