Adult Tutoring Program (OIC)
The Chester County Library partners with the Chester County Opportunities Industrialization Center (CC-OIC) of West Chester, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing free adult basic literacy education and life skills programs that prepare individuals for employment leading to economic self-sufficiency. The Library supports adult literacy through its Adult Graded Reading collection, and by providing office space, computers, supplies and other amenities for the Program Coordinator of the Adult Tutoring Program.
CC-OIC provides free one-on-one tutoring for adult learners (18+) who would like help with reading, writing, and spelling; English as a Second Language (ESL); and test preparation for the GED, CNAP, etc. A student meets with their tutor for a minimum of 3 hours/week, at a time and location that is convenient for them in order to work on the student’s goals.
For information about the classes or on becoming a volunteer tutor, please call 610-280-2618 Monday through Thursday, 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM, or contact Deborah Rikess at firstname.lastname@example.org.
