June Mission of the Month is REACH Literacy

Mission:  To provide individualized reading, writing and life skills tutoring that empowers adults in the Sioux Empire to reach their potential.

Vision:  For all adults to have the literacy skills they desire.                                                                

One to One Tutoring:  Volunteer tutors provide a critical link that adult learners with limited literacy skills need.  They receive training, ongoing support, and work to ensure each learner meets their goals.

No Fees:  We do not charge for our services.  REACH is a community-based agency funded by Sioux Empire United Way, grants, events and private donations.

Resources:  REACH provides program materials, training, online information and successful community partnerships that allow both the tutor and learner to thrive and learn.

Adults with strong literacy skills will:

  • raise children who are good readers
  • be good employees
  • keep themselves and their families healthy
  • be active in their communities
  • advocate for themselves
  • avoid crime.
