History

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.

Volunteers-Tutors

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.
