Literacy Council of Alaska
Over the summer my daughter volunteered well over a hundred hours at the Literacy Council of Alaska in Fairbanks. LCA runs a summer tutoring program for teens called Cross-Age. The teenagers are assigned elementary students to tutor in reading, writing, and math three days per week. It was a very rewarding experience for Bren, as I'm sure it was for the kids that were tutored.
The Literacy Council is supported in part by their bookstore, Forget-Me-Not Books, where most books are sold for just two dollars. I've grown to love that place!
