Southside Adult Family Literacy Project
The Literacy Project uses specific strategies to help adults improve their reading, math & workplace literacy skills. First they help clients identify their educational and career goals, then those clients are taught techniques that help change negative workplace behaviors into positive performance. Finally, parents are given strategies to help them become partners in their children’s education.
The Literacy Project uses Basic Skills, Read –On, as well as additional web based GED strategies. They provide work place experience and work place literacy skills for clients who are referred by the Department of Social Services and other agencies. An after school tutorial for children in grades K- 6 is provided Monday –Thursday from 3:00 -4:30 pm. The Literacy Project also provides Citizenship, Community, Cultural Awareness, and Cultural Participation programs.
