At the Literacy Council of Grand Island, we believe that when we work together we can achieve our goals.
When our students first meet their tutors, they have a conversation where we work together to determine what our student's goals are and how those goals can be achieved.
On April 3rd 2017 our student, Mubarak with the dedicated assistance of tutor Lyn, achieved one of his goals: he passed the United States Citizenship Test!
Mubarak has been working with Lyn at the Literacy Council since July 2016 practicing reading, writing, and speaking in English. Mubarak came to the United States from a refugee camp in the Sudan in 2012.
We are so proud of the effort that Lyn and Mubarak have put into achieving this amazing goal together and we cannot wait to find out what the future holds for Mubarak as an American citizen!
