Our vision is that every literacy organization in Texas will have the resources it needs to help as many people as possible learn basic literacy skills, so that those people can participate fully in society.
What Literacy Texas does
We provide resources and training to community-based organizations (CBOs) that help adults improve their literacy (including English speaking skills). This often includes encouraging 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 support workforce CBO programs and advocates with public policy leaders to enhance the positive impact of a more literate society.
We work with other literacy organizations, foundations, and business leaders to stress the need for public policy change to improve these numbers.
We are a champion of finding resources to keep students in the formal education system.
We hold multiple regional symposiums and an annual conference free of charge to CBO staff and volunteers.
Our strategic supporters are the best!
Making an impact on literacy in Texas isn't something we can do by ourselves.
