Dog Ears Bookstore to Offer Adult Literacy Classes to Improve Employment Opportunities

 

Free pre-training literacy classes for the unemployed and underemployed are now being offered at the nonprofit Dog Ears Bookstore, located at 688 Abbott Road, Buffalo. One-on-one sessions are available to individuals 18 and older who have a high school diploma or GED.

“I have recently teamed with Literacy New York Buffalo-Niagara Inc. and the Buffalo Center for Arts and Technology (BCAT) and will begin running a program call Pre-training Literacy designed to help adults improve their reading and workforce development skills,” said Dog Ears Director Thomas McDonnell. “The goal is to get participants ready for a job placement program offered by organization’s such as BCAT. I am also hoping to collaborate with several other job placement programs in the very near future.”

Classes will be offered at Dog Ears Bookstore by appointment only. Participants who complete the program may be eligible to receive a scholarship through BCAT’s Adult Workshop Development Program.
