Eh Wah tells story

Our mission is to support the literacy goals of adults and families living in Southwest Minnesota through personalized quality tutoring, community partnerships, and advocacy.

SUMMER PROGRAMS with ECFE and Turkey Valley Farms are coming to an end this last week in July, but we always need tutors and other volunteers.  We have several adult learners waiting to be matched, and all of our youth and family literacy programs will be back in September.  We are eager to get new tutors trained to work with them! Call us at 507-401-7337 for more information.

We welcome new adult learners at any time.  Stop by Drop-in Tutoring on  Tuesdays from 7 to 9 p.m. where tutors work with adults on English language skills, conversation and speaking, test prep (GED, ACT, TOEFL, ASVAB), transitions to college, math, and other content areas. We meet at St. Stephen Lutheran Church, 1301 South 4th St., Marshall, MN. We will not meet on Tuesday August 11, 2015.

Tech Tutors will available at the Marshall-Lyon County Library on Friday July 31 and August 7, 14 & 21 from 1-4 p.m. in the library’s computer lab.  Tutors can assist with basic computer skills, tablet use, setting up email accounts, learning Internet search strategies, and other similar tech needs.

ECFE/ Family Literacy Programs for 2015-16 will be scheduled soon. Check this website and our Facebook page for updates.

Our STEAM-ED after-school program at Marshall Middle will start again the week of September 14th.  We are currently recruiting tutors and mentors to work with English language learners in this program. An interest in science, tech, math, and the arts is a plus!

We welcome questions from potential learners and volunteers. Please email us at literacy.swmn@gmail.com or call at 507-401-7337 for more information.
