The Literacy Center of West Michigan (click for more info)

As many as 1 in 8 adults in west Michigan cannot read or write above a ninth grade level.  Low literacy often prevents these individuals from accessing the rich social and economic resources in our community.  


You can make a difference by becoming a tutor.  No special skills are needed - just an ability to read and write in English and a passion to help someone else do the same.   

For more information, call Literacy Center of West Michigan at 616 459-5151 or sign up for a volunteer orientation online at "Literacy Center W M dot org."
