21% of adults in Fort Bend County struggle with
low reading, writing, and basic math skills.

The single greatest indicator of children’s success

We teach adults how to read.

Our GED classes do more than help you pass the test -
they give you needed life skills.

ProLiteracy teamed up with Participant Media and Pivot TV to raise awareness of adult literacy in the United States. The original television series Secret Lives of Americans is a groundbreaking documentary series that takes an unflinching look at the secrets we all keep, and the strength that it takes to reveal them to our friends and family.
