Adult Literacy & GED

Detroit Reads!

The Detroit Reads! tutoring program began in 2008. We pair trained tutors with adults who want to improve their reading or math skills. 

Anyone 18 or older is welcome. You may be a first time reader or studying to pass the GED. We have helped over 600 learners reach their goals.

Become a better reader

I have gone from 0% to 40% of where I want to be in my reading level.  Now I can go to a restaurant and order my own food.  To read the newspaper.  I see a different life for me.  Life is so much easier and I am so grateful.
