Student Stories


Improved literacy skills transform lives. Hear first-hand from some of our learners in these short videos:

Veronica is a mom who is learning alongside her children.

“I used to try to be invisible.  That’s changed.” ~ Uwe, Literacy Volunteers student

Christine is from Uganda. She’s getting help with her English so she can get a GED to get a job and help her children in school.

Sergio was in a car accident a couple of years ago and lost his job. When he started at Literacy Connects, his test scores were elementary level. Now he’s at Pima College.

“I’m going to be able to write my mom a letter for the very first time.”

“When Literacy Volunteers opened my eyes to myself, it was a whole new beginning.”
