Milw Achiever AR 2002-2003


★                   ★

When you open this Milwaukee
Achiever Annual Report, you expect to
find statistics: numbers, percentages,
graphs, categories, and long lists of
names of donors, supporters, volunteers
and staff – and that’s what this report
does contain. It’s a wonderful testament
to a continuing and successful effort to
provide literacy services to hundreds of learners in the
Milwaukee area.

But there’s more to the story than facts and figures. And it’s
that part of the story that also needs to be told: how those
facts and figures affect the learners and tutors; how hearts
and lives have been changed because of the total effort of all
those who are more than just names on the numerous lists.

Jacek’s heart is part of the story. He beams as he tells of
being able to read The Turtle and the Rabbit to his
three–year–old daughter and enjoying it together.

Antonio’s excitement is part of the story as he announces his
promotion at work because he can now translate the English
directions for the other Spanish–speaking workers.

Sixty–seven–year–old Elaine had her heart set on reading
the Bible, and now the words she loves become hers as she
reads the Good Shepherd Psalm with her tutor.

A donor shares the effect on her heart, “I’m happy to be a
part of a program that does so much good for others,” and
that is echoed by Betty who speaks for the over 200 tutors,
“The day I tutor is the best day of my week. I receive more
than I give.”

Judy also knows that double effect of giving and receiving,
but in reverse. After receiving computer training as a learner,
she becomes a teacher at each Saturday computer class,
volunteering to help other computer learners.

Margarita’s heart is also part of the story as she proudly
shows her business card with “Director of the Near South
Side Interfaith Older Adult Program” beneath her name, the
culmination of years of studying English as a Second
Language, then getting her GED and now attending college.

This is the heart of the program – the impact it has on each
individual, whether a giver or a receiver. And that’s what
makes my heart glad. Thank you to each staff member,
learner, volunteer and donor who has put so much heart
into Milwaukee Achiever Literacy Services. May you receive
in return more than you give.


Peg Palmer, MSW
Executive Director
The mission of Milwaukee Achiever Program is to
provide adult learners with preparatory and
developmental instruction in Adult Basic
Education (ABE), English as a Second Language
(ESL), General Educational Development (GED),
computer skills, and the skills of citizenship
through individualized programming and flexible
scheduling. Through one–on–one and small group
collaborative efforts, learners and volunteer tutors
also achieve mutual appreciation of cultures that
enhances supportive relationships.

   “Illiteracy is one of the greatest barriers
 people face, not only in trying to get a job,
      but also in trying to complete normal

   illiteracy, one is able to move a few steps
 closer to achieving the ‘American Dream.’”
