About NPO Showcase

NPO Showcase highlights nonprofit and government organizations that improve the quality of life in our city and throughout our community. The program is a feature of GRTV and the Community Media Center, with producer and host Julie Way. You can catch it on GRTV on Saturdays at 8 AM and 6 PM and can view past episodes on the Grand Rapids Community Media Center website. If your nonprofit would like to be interviewed on NPO Showcase, please contact Julie Way.

This segment of NPO Showcase features Dr. Wendy Falb, the new Executive Director of the Literacy Center of West Michigan.

Dr. Falb joins us in studio to discuss her new role as Executive Director, what drew her to the mission, and how the Literacy Center is working to build a literate community. The Literacy Center provides literacy tutoring programs to strengthen reading and language skills. Volunteer tutors provide these programs, and the Literacy Center is always looking for new volunteers who want to help change lives through reading. You can learn more about the Literacy Center and how you can get involved at their website.

The Rapidian, a program of the 501(c)3 nonprofit Community Media Center, relies on the community’s support to help cover the cost of training reporters and publishing content.

We need your help.
