Who We Are:
Read Muskegon was founded in early 2005 to fill a significant need in our community. We are a 501(c)(3) literacy organization that provides free one-on-one tutoring in reading, writing and other literacy skills.
Read Muskegon is the Literacy Council for Muskegon County and is an affiliate of Proliteracy. We currently serve adult learners throughout Muskegon County.
What We Do:
We serve adults in Muskegon County who:
- are not yet ready for adult basic education
- need help to improve their skills so they can be successful in adult education, community college or job training programs
- want to improve their reading skills to meet personal goals such as helping their children with homework or reading to their grandchildren
- are ready to commit 1 1/2 hours a week to meet with their tutor and to practice their reading skills daily
How Services Are Provided:
Tutors go through a 10 hour training and receive ongoing support through mentors, discussion groups and other resources. Tutors provide basic reading instruction based on learner needs and interests, at times and in locations that are convenient to the learner and tutor. These services are free and are confidential.
