Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotary delivers dictionaries to Casa de Amistad’s adult literacy class in Solana Beach

L-R: Nicole Mione-Green, executive director of Casa de Amistad, Rotarian Charles Foster, and three students in Casa de Amistad’s adult education class (holding copies of donated dictionaries).

The Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotary Club recently delivered 30 dictionaries to Casa de Amistad for its adult literacy class held at the Solana Beach Presbyterian Church. In this program, adults learn English as a second language and also commit to provide a minimum of one hour of daily homework support to their children in English. As a result, both the adults and their children will benefit from the dictionaries.

Casa de Amistad is a nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering the education and character development of underserved children, teens, and their families in coastal North County San Diego. Its cornerstone “Study Companions Program” provides educational mentoring designed to improve the academic achievement of children in grades K-12.
