College Community Collaboration

LCGC has partnered with Florida SouthWestern State College to provide a new service to enrolled college students, providing literacy and language services. These college community collaboration services are designed for students in need of remedial education. Classes are taught on-site at Edison College, using LCGC volunteers. Tutors focus on English reading and language comprehension, as well as college level writing.

For “non-traditional” students enrolled in college, many challenges can present themselves. Whether there exists a language barrier in the classroom or poor basic literacy skills which inhibit the student’s ability to study and engage in theirwork, LCGC is determined to help. According to a recent report from the State Impact study, nearly 40 percent of first year college students are in need of remedial education. This program is designed to provide the tools necessary to ensure that each student is equipped to understand and participate in a college level course.
