Mission Statement

The mission of the Brazos Valley Literacy Coalition is four-fold: 1. To help young children (0-5) gain a foundation of literacy skills needed to enter school ready to succeed. 2. To help better the lives of adults in our community who suffer from functional illiteracy. 3. To help adults in our community learn English so that they can understand medical professionals, talk with their child’s teacher, get a job or advance in the one they have, and keep safe in the workplace. 4. To support parents of school aged children to help their child advance in reading skills to read on or above grade level.

Description

THE TRAGEDY OF ILLITERACY: In Texas 1 in 5 adults cannot read well enough to read a newspaper, read prescription directions, or apply for a job. This affects their children, the local workforce, and their general quality of life. Brazos Valley Literacy Coalition provides free ESL classes with trained volunteer teachers and also helps adults who are illiterate learn to read by pairing them with trained mentors.
