Herb Connolly Chevrolet is pleased continue to support Framingham Library’s program; “Literacy Unlimited”, with making a monetary donation for the first bake sale this fall at The Framingham Public Library. This bake sale was held on September 15, 2012.
Literacy Unlimited is a group of volunteers that tutors adults in English as a second language, basic literacy, citizenship and GED preparation. Established in 1986 and housed in the Framingham Public
Library, Literacy Unlimited is a member of Literacy Volunteers of Massachusetts and ProLiteracy America. They are supported with a combination of public and private funding.
The mission of Literacy Unlimited is to provide a solid, comprehensive program for training and supporting volunteers to teach basic reading, writing and/or math skills to adult learners, including those for whom English is a foreign language. The program is dedicated to increasing public awareness of the need to eliminate illiteracy in our community and expanding the availability of educational programs that accomplish this. They hold the belief that literacy strengthens society and promotes equality among its members.
The tutoring offered is confidential, individualized, student-centered, and free of charge. Adult learners and tutors, who usually work one-on-one, are carefully matched and supported to insure the best opportunity for the student to reach his/her individual goals. Typical goals for students are to achieve employment or to become better employed, getting citizenship, finishing a GED, gettinga driver’s license, learning to read to their children or simply becoming confident to function in our community.
