We empower students, tutors and volunteers to come together to shape brighter futures.
We bridge the literacy gap for adults and youth in Eagle County with tailored programs that emphasize individualized learnings. From Adult ESL to Reading Buddies, we meet learners where they’re at.
Raising a Reader
Each week this program provides low-income families with a fresh set of award-winning children’s books packed into bright red bags. This creative “rotating book bag” creates a home-school connection that engages parents as participating partners in their child’s reading development.
The heart of The Literacy Project’s life-long learning programs are the volunteer tutors dedicating their time and energy to teach students in one-to-one tutoring, or group classes.
Reading is essential for those who seek to rise above the ordinary. We help adults and children in Eagle Country acquire English reading and speaking so they can thrive.
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.
