12 Days of Giving 2016 Day 5: Crystal Routon Chose Read to Succeed

Based in Rutherford County, Read to Succeed provides adult literacy and family literacy programs that address the basic literacy needs of those who struggle with reading. In Tennessee, 1 in 8 adults struggle to read which equals to be about 838,500 Tennesseans. Being a volunteer in this organization has allowed me to see firsthand the struggle and the triumph of those who seek to improve literacy skills for their personal and professional goals. When the tutors and volunteers work directly with the learners and families, they soon realize that not only are they helping to improve readings skills, but they also help boost the confidence and motivation in their learners.

In 2015 alone, Read To Succeed and their volunteers provided 2,200 hours of free one-on-one adult tutoring, over 21,000 hours of English as a Second Language instruction, 3,000 meals to families at Family Literacy events, read to over 30,000 children, and gave away over 8,400 books to families who wanted to improve literacy in their homes!

I love seeing this organization instill the love of reading and learning back into the community!
