Volunteer Testimonials

It was so great to be part of my learner’s success story of achieving her main goal: becoming a U.S. citizen! During this dual learning process I learned (or re-learned) more about citizenship and as a result, I joined a political party for the first time in my life and even helped circulate nomination papers for several county officers. In short, my learner’s success story renewed my enthusiasm for our democracy and the Constitutional freedoms we enjoy.Jerry L.

 

My student is a male ABE student who speaks very good English after living in the U.S. for 50 years. After joining the WCLC and getting assessed, and we started at the beginning – learning the alphabet. The process is not easy for him and retention is difficult, but he has worked extremely hard for seven years. We now spend a lot of time on daily living skills to make his life easier. He is reading at a second grade level and hopes to improve enough to return to Germany.

My life has been enriched by my association with the WCLC, and I look forward to class every week and delight in the progress of my student.Judy S.

 

For nine years, I have worked with the same student. He is 48 years old and has developmental delays. When we started, he did not know the alphabet. He reads mostly by recognition of words. His motto is “I’m never going to give up.” Every week he arrives happy, interested, and motivated. He can do simple addition and read some things at a 1st grade level. What a joy it is to spend an hour with him every week!Karen S.
