Adult Literacy

Over 100,000 adults in Stanislaus County have difficulty using an ATM machine or reading a bus schedule. Not being able to read well affects everything from a person’s ability to find a job, to read to their child, to filling out health forms. Stanislaus Literacy Center has partnered with Stanislaus County Library to provide the LearningQuest Adult Literacy program at the library which offers free educational services to adults.

How the Program Works

Volunteers like you are recruited and trained to work individually with adult learners and help them learn to read and write in a way that will allow them to achieve their goals. Free curriculum materials are provided to assist tutors. Together, the tutor and learner set goals and thus begins a partnership of learning that literally changes the life of the adult learner.
