We change lives, families, and communities by tutoring adults to improve their ability to speak,
read, and write English.

 The ability to communicate effectively in English is critical to personal freedom, economic betterment, and the maintenance of a democratic society in the United States.

Grow and be well

If all adults read at a 6th grade level or higher, they’d be healthier, and our economy would be $2.2 trillion larger.
