Literacy Texas Newsletter, January 16, 2023
One by one
It’s 2023, and just 3% of the adults in Texas who need literacy assistance are getting it. That figure hasn’t budged in at least 10 years and let’s be honest – it can feel both frustrating and demoralizing. While the huge amount of unmet need can be daunting, every person who gets help is a life changed. And we all know what literacy can do – improve job prospects, set families on a new upward trajectory, and change whole communities. Literacy Texas remains committed to supporting nonprofits and other community-based literacy organizations as you help Texas families, one by one. One of the core ways we do this is providing resources to make your programs strong, and as effective as they can be. I invite you to connect with us via an upcoming training session – in just the next few weeks, you can:
- Learn more about Intake to Outcomes, the robust instructor training we’re offering to you free (now with new Employability module!) in an intro session tomorrow morning;
- Explore new ways to tell your story, engaging new donors, volunteers, and other supporters;
- Join a regional literacy symposium for networking and learning (coming up next: South Texas and East Texas).
And as always – let us know what help you need. Contact us any time to get in touch with ideas, questions, and requests at any time. And together, we’ll all keep making a difference – one by one.
