WorkLiteracy Coach
Indy Reads builds literacy, English language, and job readiness skills to empower adults and families to reach their full potential. For over 30 years, we’ve worked toward a vision of 100% literacy for all. High literacy levels give access to greater developmental, educational, and career opportunities, but current statistics show that 1 in 6 adults in Indiana read at or below a sixth-grade level. Our free, student-centered, Community Classrooms program is led by experienced instructors and trained volunteers. Community Classrooms programs include: •Literacy - Serves adults that read below a 6th grade level via individualized lessons for each student, and 1-1 or small group instruction with volunteer tutors. •ELL - Serves adults who want to learn English as a second language through Ventures curriculum, which is based on life-skills. Volunteer tutors work with students 1-1 or in small groups. •Certifications - Serves adults who read at more advanced levels and are looking to find a new career path or advance their job qualifications. We offer two options for those pursuing a career in customer service: a certification through the National Retail Federation or certification through the International Business Training Association’s Certified Business Professional course.
