Project Second Chance (PSC), the Contra Costa County Library Adult Literacy Program, offers free, confidential one-on-one basic literacy instruction to people who are over 16 years of age, out of school and conversant in English. Since it began in 1984, the program has helped more than 4,900 adults improve their reading, writing and spelling skills.
About half of PSC students were born and educated in the United States, but they never learned to read and write at the level they wish – probably due to some type of learning disability such as dyslexia. For the other half, while they are conversant in English, it is not their native language.
If you know adults who need help with reading, writing or spelling, please encourage them to call our Pleasant Hill office at 925.927.3250 or our Antioch office at 925.754.8317. In the 510 area code, you may call 510.527.7558.If you would like to get involved, drop us a line below.
