Did you know that it is National Adult Education and Family Literacy (AEFL) week? #AEFLWeek #AEFL2020

The goal of this week is to increase financial and societal support for access to basic education programs for adults with low literacy.

One way you can help support AEFL is by donating to Literacy Green Bay, where your donation goes directly towards outfitting our tutors with curriculum to teach our adult learners, providing adult learners with proper assessments, and more!

Congratulations to our #VolunteersOfTheWeek as well as our WPS Volunteer Awards Small Group Award Recipient, Literacy Green Bay Student Evaluators!

Literacy Green Bay's mission is to help adults and families acquire the reading, writing, math, English language, computer, and workforce skills they need to function effectively as workers and community members. Literacy Green Bay offers English Language Learning (ELL) classes, Family Literacy Classes, and Adult Tutoring. They offer ELL Classes in the mornings and evenings four days a week. The Children First Family Literacy program is a GED program in collaboration with NWTC and the Howe Community Resource Center, which provides GED instruction as well as early childhood learning, parenting, and PACT time. Students in their Adult Tutoring program work one-on-one with volunteer tutors on goals that are specific to their needs (i.e. improving basic reading skills, speaking better English, studying for GED).

The population who strives to learn English or want to earn their high school diploma equivalency turn to Literacy Green Bay for help. They help stop the cycle of societal issues with volunteers like Student Evaluators. The Student Evaluators at Literacy Green Bay are the first step to lifelong learning and an improved outlook on life, which becomes a ripple effect that benefits the entire community. Improved literacy skills foster a parent’s self-confidence to participate more fully in their children’s education and within their community. The mission of Literacy Green Bay is achieved through the work of generous volunteer tutors, but in order to provide the tutors with appropriate teaching materials and sufficient background on the students, adult learners need to be tested, interviewed, and evaluated by trained volunteer Student Evaluators through new learner assessments and re-assessments after every 50 hours of instructions. The average evaluation takes approximately three hours through standardized testing, interviews, determining curriculum, and summarizing the information collected in a professionally written student profile report. This service is essential to helping students get started on their road to learning with the appropriate curriculum to receive support through ELL classes, the adult tutoring program, the College & Career Readiness Class, or the Children First Family Literacy Program. Student Evaluators need to be self-directed, responsible, patient, and reassuring yet firm in adhering to testing requirements. They also need to ‘think on their feet’, as learners often have unique circumstances.

Literacy Green Bay’s seven Student Evaluators embody all the necessary qualities and ensure that the testing is provided timely and consistently while also making the student feel comfortable and welcomed. Their work has resulted in helping many individuals get started on their path to improving their English skills, earning their GEDs, studying for citizenship, achieving their personal goals, and obtaining self-sufficiency through their careers.

Thank you, Literacy Green Bay Student Evaluators, for your dedication to helping adults and families acquire the various skills they need to function effectively as workers and community members!
