Program Overview

In partnership with the City of Muskegon Heights, Read Muskegon will open our Family Literacy Center at 26 East Broadway in the spring of 2017. The center will act as a countywide hub for literacy with a focus on providing programming for low-literacy adults and
their 0-5 year olds.

Our Family Literacy Center allows
us to offer programming in a location that is accessible to the community with the most critical need. The menu of
services will include: 1) 1-1 tutoring ; 2) Small group classes focused on improving functional literacy, job readiness and instruction for parents on how to engage in early literacy development with their children; 3) Literacy based
Play & Learn groups; 4) Literacy based ABC's of Cooking, a six week parent/child healthy cooking workshop; 5) Community-based Family Literacy activities and book distribution at the Height's Farmer's Market, family movie nights, and other community events; 6) Drop-in Literacy Lab tutoring ; 7)
Family Reading Corner open 5 days a week ; 8) English as a Second Language small group class focused on job readiness and developing early literacy in children.

Student and Volunteer Success Stories

"In Read Muskegon, I learned lots of different things. I learned how to trust someone, to believe in her, and to hope for a better tomorrow. I learned how to read better, how to spell new words and understand the meaning of them." ~ Read Muskegon Learner
