By helping people learn to read and write in English, the Literacy Partners of Kewaunee County is giving some area residents a second chance. Volunteer tutors help students as old as 62 learn the language and inspire them to chase after an otherwise elusive high school diploma, GED certificate and or get a new job. Literacy Partners of Kewaunee County President Bob Garfinkel hopes to help low-income families get off on the right foot in August by partnering with the health department and UW-Extension’s Back to School event in August.
Last week, the Literacy Partners of Kewaunee County celebrated the recognition of one of its tutors and board members Kate Phillips as the Adult Volunteer of the Year by the Volunteer Center of Brown County.
