Rim Country Literacy Program has been serving adults of all ages since 1994 by teaching literacy skills in mathematics, citizenship, computers, writing and English. Students meet one-on-one with a tutor or in groups of 2-4. Both day and early evening shifts are available.
Many immigrant children struggle after moving to the USA. If their parents are not well-versed in English they cannot help the kids with school work, play dates or later, with job seeking. Further, they cannot communicate effectively with the child’s teachers (about activities and home work) unless the teacher is bi-lingual.
Rim Country Literacy provides the classes needed so that parents can learn, and in turn, better communicate with their children, the teachers and their community.
Rim Country Literacy Program is an educational 501 c (3) non profit, run by volunteers. More than 80% of their funding is provided by private donations, corporate grants and fund raising efforts.
The following four classes are offered at no charge:
