Envision a community where every child graduates from high school, the crime and poverty rates are the lowest in the nation, a skilled workforce fosters a thriving economy, and the lively arts and culture environment is second to none. We do!
Literacy Connects was founded in July 2011 by the merger of five literacy organizations. The merger created a powerful voice to promote literacy in all its forms and was based on the belief that by working together we can create the kind of community in which we all want to live.
As part of Literacy Connects, each program is part of a literacy movement that creates opportunities and resources to support the learning goals of individuals in our community.
Literacy Connects is about how we – as individuals, neighborhoods, organizations and businesses – share a human connection around literacy that helps each of us learn, grow and have a voice. Together, we are developing more resources, serving more people, doing more good, and accomplishing more than ever before.
