Dedicated to change.

Here in Eagle County, there are a surprising number of adults and children in need of literacy training to help them function more effectively in their lives. With the help of volunteers, the education community and our generous supporters, The Literacy Project helps to improve the life experiences of everyone participating. We credit our success to individualized, one-to-one tutoring from caring members of our community.
