Status: Amount Given: $0 | Goal Amount: $2,500 is such an amazing and functional outlet for people who want to give back but just do not know where it is needed. It is so simple to find an organization that you believe in. I feel very fortunate to have a website like this one where I can rest assured that my donation is going where it is needed and where I intended. Look. Learn. Do. It is really is as simple as that.

Project Description

It is estimated that 1 in 5 adults in our community lack basic reading skills. Learn to Read's mission is to increase literacy awareness and improve adult literacy in Jacksonville through a volunteer-based program. Since 1969, Learn to Read Jacksonville has served adults who read below a ninth grade level, helping to open doors to more educational, employment, and personal-growth opportunities. Over 550 adults in the community utilize Learn to Read services every year in order to achieve their goals which include enrolling in a GED program, increasing employment options, or helping their children with homework. Learn to Read offers free instruction in reading and math through one-on-one, small group, and computer-assisted learning environments. A gift to Learn to Read changes an adult life through literacy!
