Project READ - Adult Literacy Program

Literacy works.

Improved literacy helps everyone by providing a better workforce, a more engaged community, and great role models for the future. Project READ has been helping improve adult literacy in our community since 1986.

Adult literacy is an individual's ability to read, write, speak English, compute, and solve problems at a level necessary to function on the job, in the family, and in the community.

With Project READ, individuals can improve skills in reading, writing, math, English, study for a GED or US Citizenship interview, learn to use a computer, and much more FREE.

Literacy is a partnership.
