MCRA is a well established program begun in 2000. I is the only free one-on-one adult education program in the county. The PROGRAM DIRECTOR facilitates training and organization for the LOCAL COORDINATORS at EACH PUBLIC LIBRARY. The library’s LOCAL COORDINATOR matches the client with the VOLUNTEER TUTOR.

All libraries support their coordinators and supply tutoring areas.

If you want to dip your toes in, call Tara and chat at  ttruett@midyork.org or call (315) 345-1468.
