Program Overview

Learn to Read, Inc. helps adults age 16 and older improve their reading, writing, and basic math skills so they may achieve their goals. Many Learn to Read students want to enter GED classes, help their children with homework, complete paperwork on their own, advance in their career, or read aloud in church. The program is free and open year-round. One-to-one, small-group, and computer-assisted instruction is available. Volunteer tutors are always needed and welcome!

Mission Statement

Learn to Read's mission is to increase literacy awareness and improve adult literacy in Jacksonville through a volunteer-based program.

Student and Volunteer Success Stories

"I was a good worker and was soon promoted to supervisor. The problem was with all of the new paperwork. I couldn't pass the required monthly safety exams, and I couldn't write someone up for disciplinary actions. I was afraid to send my boss e-mails because I couldn't spell well. All of that changed with the help of my tutor. My office is lined with certificates from classes I've passed, and I don't hesitate to write anyone up. This has helped me so much." ~ Wilbur S.
