Programs

Adult Basic and ESOL Programs
Our Adult Basic Program is open to any adult, sixteen years or older living in southwestern Vermont. We provide trained tutors to work with adult students one-on-one to improve basic literacy skills that may include reading, writing, math, GED test preparation, basic computer, and work-related skills.

Our Adult ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) Program augments our Adult Basic Program by adding listening and speaking skills specifically to adults wishing to improve their conversational English-speaking skills as well as their reading and writing skills.

School Programs
We provide trained tutors to work with primary-grade students in an after-school tutoring program that is offered in ten local elementary schools. In cooperation with the school's administration and teaching staff, we tutor students who are struggling with reading skills but do not qualify for additional help from state and federal programs. The personal attention these children receive helps them to become successful in school.
