That’s the number of West Michigan adults who struggle with low literacy. So we have an ongoing need for volunteer literacy coaches - previously called "tutors" - to work one-on-one with adult learners.

You don’t need any special skills to be a literacy coach — just the ability to read and write English, and a passion to help others do the same. Our Volunteer Orientation will give you everything you need to get started, and our Tutor Resources are always available.
