Adult Literacy Makes A Difference!
You all do such great things everyday. You give everyone a chance to succeed and a pride that lets them know they can make the changes in their lives. Thank you for letting me share in a part of the program. - Mary Fay
"Twenty years ago, I went to night school. Since I've been coming to The Newland Center, I have learned vowels,word sounds, spelling,compuond words, reading stories and writing letters. I have made a big improvement from when I first came. The one-on-one teaching makes learningeasier for me. Learning to read nad write makes me happy. I am more happy now knowing I can read. I believe reading helps a person get ahead. I have good teachers." A NC Student
"I have enjoyed The Newland Center because of the friendly volunteers and the time they give us. The Newland Center is a convenience to me and I love coming here. They give me books to take home and review. I learned a lot since I've been here."
