About Literacy Connects

Location:

200 East Yavapai Rd., Tucson, AZ 85705, US

Mission Statement

Connecting people of all ages to a world of opportunities through literacy and creative expression. From birth throughout adulthood, Literacy Connects’ continuum of programs offers opportunities for learners of all ages to realize their potential -- at school and in the workplace, as parents, as consumers and as participants in the life of our community.

Description

Envision a community where every child graduates from high school, crime and poverty rates are the lowest in the nation, a skilled workforce fosters a thriving economy, and the arts and culture environment is second to none. We do!

Literacy Connects is a Tucson-based nonprofit founded in July 2011 through the merger of five literacy organizations. The merger was based on the belief that by working together we can create the kind of community in which we all want to live.

Last year, our staff and more than 1,500 dedicated volunteers helped more than 50,000 individuals in Southern Arizona.

Our programs coach children in reading so they don’t fall behind and teach parents the importance of reading to children. We help adults with reading, writing, math and/or English and put books in the hands of people who need them. As a powerful voice for literacy, we connect individuals and groups from across the community to work collaboratively toward better literacy outcomes.

Literacy Connects is about how we - as individuals, neighborhoods, organizations and businesses - share a human connection around literacy that helps each of us learn, grow and have a voice. Together, we are developing more resources, serving more people, doing more good, and accomplishing more than ever before.
