Promoting Literacy

Of central importance to all other elements of this initiative, the goal of the literacy program is to provide adults of Bon-Repos with fundamental reading and writing skills in either or both French and Creole. Experience and trained staff at the Alexandre Dumas School in Bon-Repos provide two hour long evening classes three days a week to develop the literacy skills of participating members. With small intimate classes, the literacy program seeks to not only provide access to education, but also to instill a commitment to further their education beyond the first year of the initiative.
