What our students have said:
Doing this class is like trying to hit a target on the wall with darts. You try to hit the target. You miss the bullseye. But you keep trying. It will pay off!
– Ms. G.
I was looking for a place to learn and to grow and to pursue my dreams. I can read better and understand what I read, as well as solve math problems I couldn’t do before. It takes hard work and motivation on my part, and the Literacy Alliance provides the teachers, classes, and kindness to help people at no cost. I am so grateful and thankful for the Literacy Alliance.
