Literacy mentors become family

Luxemburg’s Bob Garfinkel has been unofficially adopted by several families thanks in part to his work Literacy Partners of Kewaunee County. The organization helps people learn the English literacy skills needed to help them earn their General Education Diploma, pass their citizenship test, and get a job. Garfinkel says the bond he has been able to generate with his dozen students is a big reason why he and others continue to mentor students since Literacy Partners of Kewaunee County started over a decade ago.

Literacy Partners of Kewaunee County is always looking for more tutors and will host an orientation at Algoma United Methodist Church on March 5th beginning at 9 a.m. Garfinkel says he is always willing to share his experiences with those on the fence on becoming a tutor.
