LITERACY REFERRAL SERVICE
GED SCHOLARSHIPS ARE AVAILABLE
To lead a collaboration of literacy providers and supporters to strengthen services and present a united voice for literacy in Metropolitan Oklahoma City
“Without the ability to read, write and understand information, many of our citizens are unable to take advantage of the great resources in our city. And without the combined resources of all our citizens, we are unable to reach our full potential.” Mayor Mick Cornett
We support those who are attempting to break out of generational illiteracy and poverty. We support those who have learning disabilities. We support those who have basic literacy skills and have come to understand that increased knowledge and skills increases earning power. We support all those who provide literacy services. We support educators who face unprecedented challenges today in their classrooms. What can be done about the widening gap between those who cannot read and the technology that is available to those who can? “Today literacy is far more than the ability to sound out a few words of one syllable… it focuses not on recognizing basic words but on comprehension of the world around us.” Donald Block, author of Defining Literacy Up.
We believe together we will find the answers through…
100% literacy through 100% community engagement!
Are you looking to give back to your community?
Are you concerned about the thousands of individuals who live in poverty? If
there is a way out of poverty, literacy is the path. Tutors are needed!!
