Our mission is to empower individuals and enrich communities through literacy.
TO BUILD A FUTURE OF SUCCESS
The ability to read and write is the foundation to lifelong learning. We help set the foundation with structured literacy support and build on that to meet personal goals and interests. Literacy is lifelong; as reading skills grow, learning blossoms.
ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE
Approximately 10% of our local population is from another country. We work with adults from more than 40 countries to improve reading, writing, speaking, and listening through one-on-one tutoring, classes, and programming.
STRUCTURED READING INTERVENTION
We help 4th-8th graders who are struggling in school to learn to read better, using a science-backed structured literacy program. Our goal is to improve reading to help that child boost their confidence and performance in school.
FAMILIES THAT LEARN TOGETHER GROW TOGETHER
No one factor can so drastically shape a person’s chance of success, earning potential, health, and well-being. Literacy breaks the cycle that leads to daily poverty and struggle. We have programming for all levels of literacy for families, focusing on areas like financial literacy, digital literacy, and health literacy.
