KINGMAN, Arizona – The Kingman Area Literacy Program (KALP) is gearing up for another year providing 100% free tutoring for Kingman area adults and children. In spite of significant COVID-19 disruptions in 2021, KALP volunteers continued to provide and expand educational services. One key resource that accomplished both of these goals was the Read Better Be Better at-home family literacy program. Erin Roper, KALP director, was able to tap into existing interregional literacy networks in order to bring the program to the Kingman area. The primarily Phoenix-based program provided literacy kits and funding in order to support learning and reading for Kingman area families.

“It is heartening to learn of all that is happening to advance literacy in our city and region,” said Kingman Mayor Jen Miles. “The lives of those who receive KALP mentoring and tutoring will be improved immeasurably.”

KALP also provided internship opportunities for a Mohave Community College student and Arizona State University student. Their hard work and expertise helped KALP with tutor recruitment efforts by improving the website and developing a new online training curriculum for new tutors. KALP also shared the students’ efforts with other Mohave County literacy programs to reuse and remix to best support their needs.

“We accomplished a lot in 2021 and I’m excited to make our annual report and 2022 budget available to the public. It’s important the community knows how their contributions are being used to help people in Kingman,” said Roper.
