READ’s mission is to provide adults who live in or near Ottawa County, Michigan with an opportunity to improve and transform their lives by strengthening their reading and language fluency.
READ is the only nonprofit organization that provides free one-on-one tutoring to adults in Northwest Ottawa County. Strong adult literacy and education programs bring a powerful return on investment by improving the lives of adult learners, the lives of their families, and improving the economic growth of the Tri-Cities area.
READ was established as a nonprofit in 2008. The first tutor training was held in the spring of 2009. READ started with three student/tutor pairs. We have continued to grow our pairs each year and now support 40 student/tutor pairs.
