Program Overview

Project Second Chance (PSC), the Contra Costa County Library Adult Literacy Program, offers free, confidential, one-on-one basic literacy instruction to people who read or write below the 6th grade level. Students are over 16 years of age, out of high school, and speak English well enough to communicate over the telephone and in person. While many PSC students are native English speakers, many others are non-native English speakers who can benefit from tutoring sessions that are conducted in English.

PSC was founded in 1984. Since then, it has helped more than 6,100 residents of Contra Costa County improve their basic literacy skills.

Student and Volunteer Success Stories

Project Second Chance student Elaine W. wrote, "When I began to learn to read, I found confidence and strength I didn't know I had. Oh boy, you should see me now! I'm reading in Book 8 out of 12 in the Wilson Reading System. Stay tuned for more, I have just begun. The Mask is off!"
