We got the grant! The Literacy Cooperative has been approved for $28,000 from Sisters of Charity to pilot a Tutor Training Collaborative.
While additional grants are still pending, these funds will allow us to begin the process of selecting pilot partner organizations and a Tutor Training Champion who will lead the program. We will be using the Crossroads of Learning curriculum to train adult literacy tutors and the America Learns Network to track their activities and provide ongoing professional development & support. This collaboration is an innovative pilot that we hope will emerge as a promising practice for other regions to replicate.
