The Building Skills Partnership recently added a Literacy program to its list of Union Hall classes. Janitors and other low-wage service workers are given essential tools on how to effectively learn to read and write, which gives them the necessary skills and confidence to participate more fully and independently in society. This in turn, enables them to lift themselves and their families up into more promising lives for generations to come. These classes are offered to people who may not have had the opportunity to learn in their country of origin or since migrating to the United States, providing them a foundation for learning. These classes are made possible thanks to the BSPs partnership with Centro Latino for Literacy.
