In 2014, we updated our curricula and intensified volunteer recruitment, allowing us to serve more clients and exceed our goals.


We added three new courses:

1. Advanced Reading

2. United States History

3. American Pop Culture

Volunteers are an integral part of this program. A majority provided at least forty-five hours of services this year.
