Literacy AmeriCorps & The Literacy Coalition of Palm Beach County

In Palm Beach County, an estimated 1 in 7 adults functions at the lowest level of literacy and lacks the basic skills needed for today's world. Nearly half of children in third grade are unable to read at grade level. Many of these adults and children who cannot read or write well desperately want to learn. Literacy AmeriCorps members address this need by teaching in family literacy and adult education programs to assist adults to learn English, serving as Graduation Coaches in local high schools with at-risk youth, and tutoring children in elementary schools, afterschool programs and libraries.
