WHAT we do
Literacy Connects is comprised of the Literacy For Life Coalition as well as four effective programs with longstanding relationships in the communities of Tucson and Southern Arizona. Our new organization is designed to honor, respect and preserve the successful programs while offering an integrated approach to create a continuum of learning from birth through adulthood. Combined, we also create a unique opportunity to imbed art and culture into our work.
Literacy Connects supports the development of core life skills through essential literacies, including reading, writing, speaking, creative expression, financial literacy, health literacy and technology literacy. These literacies are vital tools that enable individuals to participate successfully in the workplace, the marketplace and in day-to-day community life.
We are making connections that create solutions. We encourage and support collaborations among all literacy programs. We aim to raise awareness and help expand existing resources to better serve our community.

I’m proud of myself because I went to my son’s doctor and I had to speak English the whole time. It was the first time I didn’t need a translator. After, I thought, ‘Wow,I did it!’
