Findings revealed the program's favorable impact on participants' reading performance as evidenced by the significant differences in the pretest and posttest results. Lack of significant difference in the miscues committed and the reading speed could be attributed to program's short span and tutees' absenteeism. Recommendations include project's sustainability and improvement and provision of well-planned and implemented trainings to have greater impact on the clienteles and the community.
