WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP

  • Literacy Impacts Our Entire Community

In our region, 44% of adults do not have the literacy skills they need for home, work and life. In fact, 1 in 5 (20%) struggle with very serious literacy challenges and have trouble reading even the most basic text. An additional 20% can read, but not well enough to meet the demands of today’s society.

  • Higher Levels of Literacy = Healthier Lives

Central Floridians with low literacy skills suffer poorer health those with high levels of literacy and a person’s level of literacy is one of the key determinants of their overall health. Low literacy skills can represent a risk to workplace health and safety; however many employers are not aware that there are any literacy skills issues amongst their workforce.

  • Change The Lives Of Future Generations

Parents play a vital role as their children’s first teachers. The higher the level of a parent’s education, the higher the likelihood the child will succeed in school. Only 27% of parents with below basic literacy levels report reading to their children 5 or more times a week.

  • Language Makes A New Country Feel Like Home

Immigrants make critical contributions to our society, culture, and economy. However, 60% of immigrants in our region also have low levels of literacy. English literacy allows them to not only survive, but thrive, in the United States.
