THE STORY:

Literacy New Jersey, Inc. wrote -

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 raise $25,000 in this challenge.   $10 buys one more hour of free tutoring for an adult student.  Together we can buy the next 2,500 hours of instruction.

In 2,500 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!
