Literacy Connects is a Tucson nonprofit serving children and adults through literacy and arts programming that creates solutions to many of society's most persistent problems. From reducing unemployment and poverty to increasing economic growth and opportunity, literacy is key to making a better future for all of us.
The programs of Literacy Connects coach children in reading so they don't fall behind and help adults with reading, writing, math and/or English. The programs teach parents the importance of reading to their children, help young people experience the power of words and ideas through the arts, 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.
Programs include: Reach Out and Read Southern Arizona, Stories that Soar, Reading Seed, Adult Basic Literacy, and English Language Acquisition for Adults.
