LITERACY IS A FUNDAMENTAL SKILL THAT AFFECTS EVERY AREA OF A PERSON’S LIFE.

And it isn’t just about reading—literacy involves the ability to read, write, speak and comprehend. It involves being able to compute, solve problems, and to have the skills needed to function on the job.

Our goal at the Literacy Alliance of Northeast Florida is 100% literacy on the First Coast to develop a community with a competitive workforce and a thriving citizenry. We seek to empower our students as they work towards their personal literacy goals, recognizing that gains in adult literacy also transform our community by reducing poverty, adding to the workforce, and creating new leaders in our area.

What Our Volunteers Say

This class is like a family who learns together and supports each other. Sitting at a round table lends itself to a great learning experience, not only by the students, but the teacher as well.

Working with Mr. R on Monday night was a reward. He broke down in tears several times and thanked me for taking time to help him. I’ll always be inspired by individuals who want to better their lives.
