MPPD logoOnce again the Mount Pleasant Police Department and Racine Literacy Council will be offering an informational meeting for people that are interested in the English Language Learner program. The informational meeting will be held at the Mount Pleasant Police Department’s Lakeside COP House, 2237 Mead St. Mount Pleasant, on December 14th at 6pm.

Outreach will be done to get the word out to community members who would benefit from English conversation classes or tutoring to help with English reading and writing skills. Once the community needs are assessed, Racine Literacy Council will seek the help of community volunteers to provide tutoring to interested individuals.

Since 1965, the Racine Literacy Council has provided adult literacy programs in Racine County. They are a volunteer-based organization that works to bring awareness to the community about the importance and impact of literacy. Programs include: tutoring for English Language Learners, pre-GED, GED and math tutoring, conversation, computer and citizenship classes, and written drivers license test preparation. Each year, over 300 adults receive much needed literacy services with the help of over 100 volunteer tutors. Visit www.racineliteracy.com to find out how you can complete our tutor training and begin changing the lives of adults in the Racine community as soon as possible!

With a proven record of serving hundreds of adults each year, the Racine Literacy Council is excited about the possibility of extending services to the Mount Pleasant COP House. If you know of someone who could benefit from English tutoring or are interested in becoming a volunteer to help this initiative be a success, please contact Officer Matt Prochaska (mprochaska@mtpleasantwi.gov) or Margarita Fons (mfons@racineliteracy.com) for more information.
