What we do

Literacy nonprofits and other organizations in Texas serve over 90,000 residents who don’t yet read, write, and/or speak English at a level that would let them reach their full potential. But there are currently 4.8 million adults in Texas who need this sort of help – leaving a large group of people currently not getting the assistance they need.

Because we believe every Texan has the right to literacy, our work focuses on getting nonprofits and other literacy providers the training and resources they need to serve more people, to the highest possible standard. We have a special focus on providing professional development for tutors, staff, instructors, and volunteers at nonprofit organizations providing adult literacy services. 

We use many methods to support literacy across Texas, including resources hosted here online, a series of free regional and statewide training symposiums throughout the year, and our annual conference, which hosts 250+ literacy professionals every year for networking and professional development.

Literacy TX Annual Conference 2018

Literacy Texas is here to provide and empower literacy nonprofits with training and best practices so they can focus on what they do best: Working alongside adults and families as they strive to improve their lives through literacy. Because literacy transforms Texas, and is the key to a brighter future for us all.
