We get as tired as anyone else of the "Save Detroit" mantra, but there's no question that reducing the city's illiteracy rate could only help. If you have the luxury of time this holiday season, the Detroit Public Library is looking for reading tutors. Their Literary Services provide city dwellers with GED training, learning kits, computer skills courses and one-on-one tutoring sessons. What a great way to give someone, as the cliche goes, a gift that truly lasts a lifetime.
If it was not for this program, I would be still where I was. Now I'm
getting better and I am happy for this program. It is doing me some
to be a part of the DPL tutoring program.
