RNC IV Pre-Conference (Seminar C)

Volunteer-Based Adult Education Programs for Hispanics: A Case Study of the Plaza Comunitaria @ Richardson Public

Yolanda Medina, Coordinator, Richardson Public Library

Cost: $50 (REFORMA Member); $75 (Non-Member)

Plaza Comunitaria is a volunteer-based, free of charge, adult literacy program for Hispanics in collaboration with the Mexican Institute of Adult Education (INEA), the Richardson Independent School District and the Richardson Public Library. There are over 400 Plazas Comunitarias in the United States. This program allows Hispanics to learn to read and write in their native language, complete Elementary and Intermediate level education, transition into GED preparation, learn English as a Second Language, and learn computer and life skills. The seminar would explain the process in opening a Plaza Comunitaria in your library and how the program works using the Richardson Public Library as a case study.
