On Friday night, May 7th, the One 2 One Learning Association, a not-for-profit literacy organization, hosted a gala event in Nyack to honor outstanding students, humanitarians, and local advocacy groups. Among the guests, Professor Christine Buel was invited by Sister Cecilia LaPietra to represent Nyack College and the School of Education Faculty. The highlight of the event was hearing from local Latino students who have had their lives transformed due to the volunteer tutoring efforts of local residents and students from Nyack College. Next semester, the School of Education will strengthen its ties with the program by engaging in literacy tutoring for adults and reading and arts instruction for children accompanying the adults. The goal of this initiative will be to equip local English language learners with the tools to acquire gainful employment and to support the local public schools in their efforts to teach language and literacy skills to the children enrolled in the program.
