Our vision is that every literacy organization in Texas will have the resources it needs to help adults and families learn basic literacy skills, so that all people can participate fully in society.
Literacy starts at home
November is National Family Literacy Month. It’s a great time to focus on parents, grandparents, and all kinds of carers – a child’s “important adults” – and their role in fostering a love of literacy and learning.
What Literacy Texas does
We provide resources and training to the staff and volunteers at community-based organizations (CBOs). Texas literacy organizations help adults to learn English, increase their reading, and many have a particular focus on assisting parents and caregivers to increase their own literacy and support their child’s learning.
We support CBO staff and volunteers who offer alternative high school degree programs.
We are a champion of finding resources to keep students in the formal education system.
