In 1981 our founder, Dorothy Brennan, established this non-profit organization after having read in the local newspaper that a child died due to the mothers inability to read the directions on the medicine bottle.
At Learn to Read we recruit volunteers and then provide them with a free Tutor training so they are prepared to provide literacy services to those learners in our community.
To improve lives through literacy
The gift of literacy is offered to any person 16 years or older through free,confidential instruction in reading,writing and speaking English, and the technological skills needed to solve problems encountered in daily life
