Adult Literacy is a club aimed at tutoring adults with disabilities and special needs. Students get paired off with adults at the beginning of each semester to tutor in areas such as math, reading, writing or even just coloring. Student tutors stay with their assigned adult each week in order to build relationships and to get to know each other better. On holidays we often throw parties with the adults which include food, music and fun! One of the most appealing parts of Adult Literacy is that it benefits everyone involved. The adults are always eager to learn, and walk into class with a smile on their face, while the students feel a deep satisfaction and happiness in aiding the greater Providence community and building relationships with the adults. Adult Literacy meets Tuesday and Wednesday nights in Feinstein (room 116) from 7-8.
