Literacy New York is pleased to announce that the Janice Cuddahee Fund is underwriting ten tutor training workshops for YMCA Educational Services (YES!) in New Orleans! YES! "teaches basic reading, math, writing, and beginning digital literacy skills to individuals aged 16 and up in the downtown New Orleans area who are disproportionately affected by poverty, poor health, and increased risk of incarceration," according to Andrea Gazaway, Coordinator of Instruction. This program fills an important need in its community, and the addition of evidence-based, quality tutor training will build the capacity of YES! to do even more.

Janice Cuddahee was a literacy advocate who enjoyed a long career with Literacy New York. The Janice Cuddahee Fund was created in her memory-- to donate, or to read more, visit https://www.literacynewyork.org/janice-cuddahee-fund
