Meeting Literacy Needs In Texoma

The Wichita Adult Literacy Council (WALC), North Texas Area United Way (NTAUW), and Wichita Falls Housing Authority (WFHA) are working together to combat illiteracy in Texoma. Representatives from each organization are increasing their efforts and pushing for members of the community who may not be able to read or who struggle with reading to take advantage of free walk-in tutoring clinics at The HUB.

The Wichita Adult Literacy Council tutoring program began offering tutoring sessions on May 1. Reading tutors are available Tuesday afternoons from 12:00 – 2:00. Tutors are also available Thursday evenings from 5:00 – 7:00. Tutoring clinics take place at The HUB, located at 115 E. Wichita Street in Wichita Falls.

Through the program, a certified reading tutor, trained by the Wichita Adult Literacy Council, is available to help people with:

-          Reading mail

-          Explaining documents

-          Completing applications

-          Writing letters

-          Answers about the Wichita Adult Literacy Council tutoring program

Appointments are also available for anyone with a need for ongoing services.

Region 9 Adult Education Service Center also hosts GED and ESL classes at The HUB. If you are interested in enrolling in any of these courses, call Region 9 at (940) 322-6928.

Representatives from the Wichita Adult Literacy Council hope to grow the free tutoring clinic program. In growing the program, organizers need more people to take advantage of its services! If you're interested in becoming a certified reading tutor, training to receive the certification begins in June.
