Literacy Program
The Literacy Program provides one-on–one tutoring for adults who need help in basic literary skills. One program is designed to meet the needs of English-as-a-second-language (ESL) students in reading comprehension, writing & spelling. A second program is designed to help English speakers with language processing difficulties, who read and spell below expected level. Tutoring is offered by trained volunteers for two hours per week, days or evenings in the Literacy Center. Please call (805) 497-2761 x1116. Registration Fee: $60 (includes books).
