Bashaw, Marjorie K.
This study examines the history, development, and important characteristics of Project: LEARN, a community-based literacy program in Cleveland (Ohio). The program started in 1974 and is an affiliate of Laubach Literacy International. It has successfully used volunteer tutors to teach basic reading and writing skills to thousands of illiterate adults. Data collected for this case study were derived from interviews conducted with present and former staff of Project: LEARN, as well as from correspondence, board meeting minutes, reports, newsletters, publicity releases, newspaper articles, and an annual meeting of Project: LEARN. Related literature is reviewed; and the following characteristics of Project: LEARN are described: mission statement and purpose, organization and structure, facilities, programs, student support groups, funding, budget, tutor training, educational materials, and future plans.
