tutors in 12 weeks' statewide campaign kicked off
hoping to train that many new tutors before December
One of the organizations looking to contribute to
that total is the Hope Academy .
at the Family and Children's Center in La Crosse.
The academy helps teen mothers with their schooling
to help them earn their high school diplomas.
Some of the students struggle with learning disabilities
and officials say tutors can help create a big change
in their students' lives.
Literacy in general really opens the door to many
different opportunities, especially in this information
age that we live in, and it allows them to have a
voice for change in our community.
The Hope Academy is hoping to hire six new tutors.
