What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Adult & Family Literacy

• Standardized Tutor Training: We led the way in the creation of a comprehensive, research based training for literacy tutors now being used in many West Michigan counties.

• 1-1 Tutors: We train and manage a pool of highly trained tutors and provide them with individualized support, allowing us to give each learner personalized instruction.

• Literacy Labs: We are developing a drop-in literacy support service that will be placed in facilities throughout our community. Currently we will server students at adult education facilities and parents at public schools and Head Start centers.

• Family Literacy: We are partnering with several local agencies to provide early-literacy training and literacy support to parents with young children.

• Linking Literacy to Life Skills: We are developing Life Skills classes and other events to increase learner retention while also linking literacy to other basic needs. As an example, we partnered with MSU Extension to provide a literacy-based cooking class.

• Community Partnerships: We continue to develop partnerships that create stronger links between the mission of Read Muskegon and those of other community organizations and agencies. A recent example is our partnership with MI Works to provide small group classes at their facility. Other partners include the Lakeshore Literacy Coalition, Pathways MI, Great Start to Quality, Community enCompass and the Community Coordinating Council.
