EMPOWERING OUR COMMUNITY THROUGH LITERACY

WHY LITERACY?

Because literacy skills affect almost every aspect of life.

Income improves

In the US, earning a high school diploma or GED increases weekly pay by nearly 25%.

Health improves

With higher literacy skills, individuals are better able to follow instructions from doctors and directions on medication bottles.

Everyday life improves

Increased literacy makes everyday actions such as filling out applications, understanding signs and reading labels, helping children with homework, reading the newspaper, and being an informed voter easier and more accessible.

No one can answer the question “Why Literacy?” better than our students. Listen as each student tells his/her story of struggles, turning points and bright futures.
