Reading Connections transforms our community by improving literacy and promoting educational equity for people of all ages, empowering them to navigate changes in an increasingly complex world.
One in five people in Guilford County struggles with basic literacy skills. That means more than 80,000 adults in our community live without access to information to ensure health, financial stability, and security for themselves and their family. Not only does low literacy limit their potential, it limits the potential of their children for years to come.
We envision a fully literate community where all individuals have the knowledge, skills, and opportunities to flourish.
We are working to eradicate illiteracy. We do this by training volunteers to work with adult learners one-on-one and in small groups. Our staff instructors teach larger groups to support employers in training their employees. This leads to greater productivity, higher wages, and promotions.
