Pro-Literacy Detroit realizes the severity of this problem.
WHAT IS PRO-LITERACY DETROIT
Pro-Literacy Detroit is a non-profit organization that aims to solve adult illiteracy. We help adults 16 and over become independent readers, writers, and speakers of English.
We match each student with a volunteer tutor.
The pair meets at a time and space convenient for each other.
Through the use of online learning programs, the tutors empower students to achieve their goals.
