Bay Area Literacy (BALIT)


Serves adults in the Bay Area who choose to improve their reading and writing skills. BALitís 24 member programs are located in libraries from Marin County to Santa Clara County. Each year these programs serve some 6,500 adults, helping them to achieve their goals and expand their opportunities.

Library-based literacy programs offer free, individualized and confidential tutoring with trained volunteer tutors from the community. Learners gain the skills they need to read to their children, complete job applications, pass the driverís test, write a birthday card and achieve whatever goals they have set for themselves. Tutors are amazed by what they learn from their partners.
