Fact 7

    Give the Gift of Literacy

    * Required


Basic Literacy is a program for adults who want to develop and/or improve their reading and writing skills.  A tutor works one-on-one with a student in a supportive, self-paced environment to develop an individual plan to help the student attain his/her personal goals.  Goals cover a wide variety of topics including everything from life skills (like making a grocery list, writing a check, reading to children/grandchildren) to preparing for higher education opportunities like the GED.  Sessions are usually held twice a week for 1 1/2 hours per class.  Both daytime and evening classes are available.  Students are given a written assessment at registration to determine reading level.

The Literacy Council of Fort Bend County, an Accredited Affiliate of ProLiteracy America, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  Our mission is to end inter-generational cycles of illiteracy in Fort Bend County by improving adult literacy skills and generating community-wide literacy awareness.

Make a difference . . . Our support comes from continuing donations from individuals, service groups, foundations and corporations.  A donation of $250 provides a year of support materials for a student and his/her tutor.  $1,000 provides materials for four students for a whole year.

Many people talk about the problem of illiteracy . . .YOU  can actually do something about it!
