What would your life be like if you couldn’t read what your children are eating?
Or, what to do when they discover things under the sink?
What if you couldn’t fill out a job application because you can’t understand the questions?
Make a Difference in Someone’s Life
Supporting adult literacy and basic education in your community is a sound investment. Did you know that there is a 450% return on investment for adult education programs? This return is in the form of increased tax revenue and reduced reliance on social services. Educated citizens work, pay taxes and give back to their communities through volunteering and supporting their children’s educational development.

It was September 22, 2009 when I decided to walk through the doors of The Literacy Council. Since then, I’ve been studying constantly with the goal of getting my GED. So far, I passed three of the five tests. If it wasn’t for the care and dedication of the staff and its programs, I would not be thinking of becoming an assistant English teacher, so I can help others like the staff of The Literacy Council has helped me.
