TRANSFORMING LIVES

through adult literacy

Adults  need strong literacy skills ...

TO BREAK CYCLES

Learning to read begins long before a child enters school. It begins when parents read to their children, buy their children books, and encourage their children to read. The reasearch is clear: parents who are poor readers don't read as often to their children as do parents who are strong readers. Children of low-literate  parents enter school less prepared to learn to read than other children. 

TO BE GOOD EMPLOYEES

The employees most in demand in the U.S. have at least a two-year college degree. Workers must be able to read safety regulations and warnings so they and their co-workers can stay safe on the job. And working in a team means that employees must be able to communicate clearly with one another.

TO KEEP THEMSELVES & THEIR

FAMILIES HEALTHY

Tennessee has an estimated 572,000 adults without a high school diploma; 131,000 reside in Shelby County alone with 2,000 drop-outs. In 2014, Memphis was the fifth least literate city in the US.

TO REDUCE CRIME

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.

Tennessee has an estimated 572,000 adults without a high school diploma; 131,000 reside in Shelby County alone with 2,000 drop-outs. In 2014, Memphis was the fifth least literate city in the US.

TO ADVOCATE FOR THEMSELVES

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.
