Student and Volunteer Success Stories

To provide the most effective one-to-one or small class tutoring experience possible for adult English Language Learners in Harmon County was the ultimate goal of this Harmon County outreach project. GPLC's foundational belief is that the quality of staff and tutor knowledge and expertise is a vitally important key to adult learner success. The project promoted literacy by expanding outreach to the community through the use of flyers and social media posts as well as print and broadcast media announcements with the goal of creating awareness and recruiting new tutors and learners.
