The education provided by Chatham Literacy has a tremendous impact, on the lives of both our students and our tutors. Students gain new skills which help them in their careers, as a role model to their families, and as a member of our community. Tutors are moved and rewarded by seeing their students succeed in their studies and in life.

“Being a tutor has brought me a wonderful new friend from El Salvador, and it has given me the opportunity to watch her blossom as she explores a new country, a new language, and countless new experiences. My student has become a model to me of exemplary energy, planning, dedication, and passion involved in working toward what would have once been unimaginable goals.” – Anne Dobson
