The Clinton County Literacy Program focuses on early literacy learning by reading in the preschool and elementary schools. Volunteer tutors meet one-on-one with adults who need help with reading and writing. Parents and children – or more broadly – adults and children – learn together.
What does the program offer?
- A United Way agency that receives administrative support and office space from the Frankfort Library.
- Adults striving to improve English language skills by working one-on-one with a trained and skilled tutor.
- Volunteers promoting learning by reading books to preschool classes.
- Classes that explore reading and writing skills in a family context.
- Community reading days in the elementary schools where members of the community read a book and talk to students about the importance of reading.
- Books on Bus that provides books to kids on their bus ride to and from school (NEW for 2016).
- People using Rosetta Stone software to learn English independently.
