Project Second Chance (PSC), the Contra Costa County Library Adult Literacy Program, offers free, confidential, one-on-one basic literacy instruction to people who read or write below the 6th grade level. Students are over 16 years of age, out of high school, and speak English well enough to communicate over the telephone and in person. While many PSC students are native English speakers, many others are non-native English speakers who can benefit from tutoring sessions that are conducted in English.
How Your Donation Helps
It is estimated that one in five adults in California struggles with reading, such that they would be unable to handle basic literacy tasks. Project Second Chance was founded in 1984 to help tackle this problem. Since that time, PSC has helped more than 5,400 county residents develop skills to read to their children, vote, advance at work, write to family and friends, read the newspaper, follow directions, acquire their high school diploma, and perhaps most significantly of all, feel better about themselves.
