We envision a community where all adults have the literacy skills that enable them to achieve their personal and professional goals.
We provide free, one-to-one tutoring for adults reading at or below 6th grade level. We work with both Basic Literacy students and new English learners.
Why we're here
Complete a job application
About 25% of Rio Arriba County residents lack basic literacy skills. About one in three have limited literacy skills, which means they struggle to read the newspaper or fill out job applications.
When people can’t read, they face an uncertain future
Adult literacy students often make big changes in their lives as their abilities improve:
