Affiliate Partners Program

The National Literacy Directory assists potential students and volunteers in locating nearby educational programs and services. The Directory also supports literacy and education professionals through a learning network that provides the latest resources, research, and grant opportunities. This site strives to build a community that celebrates successes and explores innovative solutions to common literacy roadblocks.

The National Center for Families Learning, managing organization of the Directory, welcomes like-minded organizations to join the Directory's Affiliate Partners program and assist in providing high quality literacy services for the community. Through this partnership, the Directory will provide an opportunity for Affiliate Partners to share free resources, current events, funding opportunities, student-facing materials, and organization information to the Directory's 7,000+ listings.

The Affiliate Partners program was created for the National Literacy Directory to further support learners and volunteers in search of news and information about literacy and education programs.
