Student and Volunteer Success Stories
After I retired, I was a 55-year-old man that would not dare pick up a book and read a story to my grandkids. It has been four years now, and I am pretty proud of myself. — Student David
From my experience, people are so appreciative, which is very, very fulfilling. — Tutor Eric
With my mother tongue, I [was] trapped in one world. With English, it's a new kind of view of the world. It's very moving. — Student Tina
Today, Su speaks fluent English. Seven months ago she would not have spoken to a grocery store clerk, a sales person, a librarian or anyone else in public. — Tutor Susan
I can write the grocery list. I can read with my granddaughter. I can read the signs when I'm driving and read my Mother's Day cards out loud. — Student Onida
The Oakland Literacy Council supports adults who are English language learners and native English speakers.
