LCLC is a group established by Rotary Clubs, Libraries, and other interested persons in Livingston County with the mission to "ensure that every person in Livingston County who wants to read, can." Our purpose is threefold: Assess literacy needs in Livingston County, assess literacy resources in Livingston County, and establish, support, and encourage literacy programs to fill the gaps of needs.
At this time our focus is on helping Livingston County Adults who are struggling with their reading due to "falling between the cracks" during their time in school, or after being out of school for years. Requests for help have come from students enrolling in Lansing Community College, those who are in the Livingston County jail, or friends and family members of concerned county people. We do not tutor ESL (English as a Second Language) adults at this time. Upon completion, you would be given the opportunity to tutor an adult from Livingston County one day/week for 1 hour and half. We only tutor in public places and the tutor makes the connection with the student via phone.
I would appreciate a RSVP so that I may coordinate materials for your training and reserve a space for you.
Thank you for your consideration in this endeavor.
