Thomasville, Georgia-- Members of the First Missionary Baptist Church in Thomasville are starting a program called Literacy Coaching.

The kick-off starts at the church on Monday at 5:30. There will be a variety of activities to mark the actual program, which begins next month.

Organizers say they're hoping to recruit adults as well as children. "If you can't read as an adult, how can you teach your children how to read correctly, and to understand what they're reading. So, as an adult, being illiterate is not an embarrassing situation. What is embarrassing is when you don't get help," says organizer, Donnell Carley.

Literacy Coaching will be held at the Church on the second and fourth Saturday of each month, starting in November. There will be speech therapists, and physical therapists there.
