About Our Program

Mission:
The mission of Calaveras Adult Tutoring, the literacy program at the Calaveras County Library, is to assist adults in gaining the skills, knowledge, and confidence needed to reach their potential goals. The literacy skills are developed through a partnership formed between learners and volunteer tutors. All services are free and confidential.

Services:
Calaveras Adult Tutoring (C.A.T.) provides free one-on-one tutoring to adults who want to improve their basic reading, writing, math, preparing for the GED and basic computer skills. Tutoring is done by members of the community. Materials are provided free of charge to tutors and learners. Tutoring sites are located in public locations throughout Calaveras County. Literacy staff members assist tutors and learners as they progress through the program.

Literacy Council:
The Literacy Council was organized in 1999 to help with learner and tutor recruitment, fund raising and provide public awareness of literacy issues. The Board Members are Jean Beaufort, Susan Metzger, Kathy Northington, Veda Scherer; and staff member Diane Kriletich.

Funding:
Calaveras Adult Tutoring was established in 1998 through the California Literacy Campaign Grant. We currently receive funding through Calaveras County, California Library Literacy Services, Prop 36, County Jail, Friends of the Calaveras County Library. Donations are also received from service groups, businesses, and individuals.

Staff Members:
Diane Kriletich, Program Manager
