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!
